The sums raised at the auction of Muhammad Ali’s drawings held Tuesday in New York reached record highs. Some of these little-known works of art exceeded the auctioneers’ estimates.

 

The auctioneers said that during the auction, 26 works by Muhammad Ali sold for a total of $945,524, more than three times the low estimate. One of the most sought-after drawings was a 1978 sketch of a boxing match entitled “Sting Like a Bee“, which was estimated to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000. According to Bonhams, the auction house, this piece was acquired by a British collector. For the other sales, the buyers were not identified.
