Ketterer Kunst in Munich announces sale of German Avant-Garde paintings in October

MUNICH.- The greatest treasures can often be found off the beaten paths. That also accounts for the Special Auction Side lines of the German Avant-garde, which will be held in context of the auction of Modern Art on 28 October.

"A lot of works by artists presented in this auction fell victim to World War II and later sank into oblivion. This makes it even more important to put these works, which don't need to hide their light behind renowned names such as Otto Dix, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner or August Macke, into the limelight to a greater extent", thus Robert Ketterer.

The intention of the owner of Ketterer Kunst is to draw public attention to artists that have been wrongly forgotten and to thus give them the merits they deserve. With this unusual concept Ketterer Kunst offers artists of both Expressionism and New Objectivity, whose oeuvres were strongly depleted during the Third Reich, their own forum. On the other hand, the auction house wants to stipulate the rediscovery of forgotten talents. It is for these reasons that the auction aims at art lovers who have an eye for quality and not merely an ear for the sound of big names. The concept’s success has been proven by the great demand and the fact that this will be the eighth auction of its kind.

This year’s offering focuses on works made from around 1900 up into the late 1930s. It will be lead by Hans Michaelson’s oil painting "Blumenvase", carrying an estimate of € 8,000-12,000. The artist, who is represented with three more works, captures the observer with his expressive "Männerportärt" (estimate: € 4,000-6,000), the "Stillleben mit Goldregen" (estimate: € 6,000-8,000) as well as with the work "Dorfplatz mit Fässern" (estimate: € 3,000-4,000).

Two more top lots are by Hermann Scherer, whose watercolor and charcoal works will be called up at € 4,000-5,000 each.

In addition the focus is, among others, on works by Josef Eberz, Curt Ehrhardt, Werner Koch, Carl Lohse, Alfred Mumbächer, Otto Rodewald, Karl Peter Röhl, Hugo Scheiber, Gabriele Stock-Schmilinsky, Max Schwimmer, Alwin Stützer and Otto Wilfried.

The special auction will be carried out in context of the auction of Modern Art with works of up to € 20.000. Other highlights in this auctions come from artists such as Max Beckmann, Lyonel Feininger, Conrad Felixmüller, George Grosz, Gabriele Münter, Emil Nolde, Christian Rohlfs, Pablo Picasso and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
