Munich, 30 March, 2016, (kk) – There's a fresh spring breeze, because from now on the leading auction house Ketterer Kunst puts the focus on paintings, drawings and prints from the 19th to the first two decades of the 20th century.

“The interest in this era has been continuously increasing for some time now, which is also proven by more than 20% new clients in every auction. As far as the upward growth rate and the increasing sales quotas are concerned, the decision to sharpen the focus on this segment is a logic consequence“, says company owner and CEO Robert Ketterer.

The department can now rely on the additional support of the art historian Andreas Geffert, who joined Ketterer Kunst in 2013 after he had already been active in the Munich art trade for some time. Together with the expert Sarah Mohr, he now attends to his passion of 19th Century Art.

The department's focus is on works from Romanticism by artists such as Carl Blechen and Carl Dahl, the Munich and Düsseldorf Art Schools with works from their main representatives Carl Spitzweg, Franz von Defregger, Eduard von Grützner, Johann Wilhelm Schirmer and Oswald Achenbach, as well as works from around the turn of the century with the big names of, amongst others, Symbolism and Art Nouveau: Ludwig von Hofmann, Franz von Stuck and Franz von Lenbach. The department's profile is completed by, for instance, the mountain- and landscape panoramas by Edward Theodore and also Edward Harrison Compton and, naturally, by graphic works from acclaimed artists like Honoré Daumier, Paul Gauguin and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Ketterer Kunst has already been entrusted with some treasures for the upcoming auction on 25 May. Highlights are the large-size painting of dancing beauties by Ludwig von Hofmann (estimate: EUR 50,000–70,000) and a triptych by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (estimate: EUR 25,000–35,000) as well as Franz von Stuck's “Sonnenuntergang“ (estimate: EUR 25,000–35,000), Alexander Koester's “Sieben Enten am Graben“ (estimate: EUR 20,000–30,000), virtuously executed in late-impressionist manner, and, last but not least, several works by Wilhelm Kuhnert with estimates up to EUR 35,000.

Alongside Hermann Corrodi, who is represented with the view “Kalifengräber von Kairo“ (estimate: EUR 10,000–12,000) in landscape format, other important names are, among others, Jan Chelminski, Max Clarenbach, Edward Theodore Compton, August Gaul, Friedrich August von Kaulbach, Peder Mørk Mønsted, Adolf Schreyer, Josef Wenglein, Aloys Zötl and Heinrich von Zügel.
