A top price for Zenzaburo Kojima

When the work Red Background (Nude) by Zenzaburo Kojima was auctioned at Christies in Hong Kong in May this year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 500,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than four times as high at HKD 2,142,000.00 (€ 256,742.44). This high result makes Red Background (Nude) the most expensive artwork by Zenzaburo Kojima that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für Zenzaburo Kojima

Als die Arbeit Red Background (Nude) von Zenzaburo Kojima im Mai diesen 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 500.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 2.142.000,00 (€ 256.742,44) mehr als viermal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht Red Background (Nude) zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von Zenzaburo Kojima, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
