#TTTOP x Sotheby's nets almost $17.5 Million USD

The auction did better than the $90,000,000 HKD/$11,500,000 USD estimate. Biggest bids went to Lee Ufan's Winds ($1.4 Million USD), Gerhard Ritcher's Abstraktes Bild ($1.5 Million USD), Rudolph Stingel's Untitled ($2 Million USD), and Jean-Michel Basquiat's Infantry ($6 Million USD).

I am so happy for him! Hopefully this will lead to more opportunities for curator TOP. Congrats to him, Sotheby's, and the Asian Arts Council. I personally think he bought either the Lee Ufan or the Ivan Navarro.
