Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In November 2012 Christies in Hong Kong held the auction Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art (Evening Sale), which included the work Woman in Chemise by Zenzaburo Kojima. The »bidding war« ended at HKD 1,040,000.00 (€ 103,120.68), 16% above the upper estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Zenzaburo Kojima - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Red Background (Nude), which sold at auction in May this year for HKD 2,142,000.00 (€ 256,742.44).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im November 2012 führte Christies in Hong Kong die Auktion Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art (Evening Sale) durch, in der auch die Arbeit Woman in Chemise von Zenzaburo Kojima zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von HKD 1.040.000,00 (€ 103.120,68) und damit 16% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Für andere Arbeiten von Zenzaburo Kojima mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Red Background (Nude) beobachtet, die im Mai diesen Jahres für HKD 2.142.000,00 (€ 256.742,44) versteigert wurde.
