First Malaysian Art Auction Off To A Flying Start

Ibrahim Hussein's The Dream - RM455K

The first Malaysian Art Auction held by the Henry Butcher Auctioneers flew off to an impressive start with about RM1.5 million worth of local art business done. Heading the impressive sale was the late Ibrahim Hussein's work - The Dream (Acrylic on Canvas - 121cm by 121cm) 1969 - which went for RM500,500 – inclusive of the 10% buyer’s premium.

However, the greatest increase in price value was the pastel piece by Hoessin Enas (Peasant Girl - 48cm by 32cm - 1993) which went for RM44K, more than twice its expected price of RM20K.

Hoessein Enas's The Pesant Girl - RM41K

Yong Mun Sen's watercolour works The Bridge (1948) and Horse Carriage in Malacca (1953) went for RM23 and RM25K respectively.
