28. Jun - 7. Jul 2022
Estimate: 100.000 - 200.000 HKD
Price realised: 756.000 HKD
YUICHI HIRAKO (B. 1982) Lost in Thought 37 signed with artist’s monogram; dated ‘19’ (on the reverse) acrylic on canvas 116.7 x 91 cm. (46 x 35 7/8 in.) Painted in 2019

Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Lost in Thought 37 by Yuichi Hirako was auctioned at Christies in Hong Kong in July last year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 200,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at HKD 756,000.00 (€ 94,333.27). Admittedly, works by Yuichi Hirako have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Bark 62 in April this year with an auction result of HKD 456,000.00 (€ 465,665.22).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Lost in Thought 37 von Yuichi Hirako im Juli letzten Jahres bei Christies in Hong Kong versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – HKD 200.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 756.000,00 (€ 94.333,27) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Yuichi Hirako auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Bark 62 im April diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von HKD 456.000,00 (€ 465.665,22).
