Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Brave Tom Series No. 6, 18 & 38 (Three Works) by Zhang Gong was auctioned at Bonhams in London in May this year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 20,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at HKD 76,800.00 (€ 9,205.33). Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Zhang Gong; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Computer Age sold at auction in March 2007 with the realized price of USD 13,200.00 (€ 9,869.90).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Brave Tom Series No. 6, 18 & 38 (Three Works) von Zhang Gong im Mai diesen Jahres bei Bonhams in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – HKD 20.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 76.800,00 (€ 9.205,33) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Trotz des guten Ergebnisses ist dies nicht der höchste Zuschlag für ein Kunstwerk von Zhang Gong; den erzielte unter den von uns beobachteten Auktionen die Arbeit Computer Age im März 2007 mit dem Hammerpreis von USD 13.200,00 (€ 9.869,90).
