Buying Art - it´s so easy to buy Art at Ketterer Kunst
Auctions (Saleroom)
Our auctions offer an unequaled experience. Feel the tension rise once the object is called up, sense the nail-biting uncertainty of the bidding battle and witness the triumph when the gavel goes down.

We offer a broad range of high-class works by international artists of 19th Century Art, Modern Art, Post War and Contemporary Art.

What buyers particularly value is our expertise and the effort we put into the artworks´ description, as well as a smooth service that makes buying art a real pleasure. If you can´t be part of the action in the saleroom, you may also submit an absentee bid, which will only be exhausted as competing bids require. Naturally, you may also bid over the phone or the internet.

Here´s how you can join the auction:

  • In the saleroom
  • Submit a commission
  • Bid over the phone
  • Bid over the internet

Individual consulting for your corporate collection
Your company is in possession of an art collection and you think about possible changes?
There are many good reasons why a corporate collection should be adapted to meet the company‘s latest development. In an ideal case a collection reflects corporate identity, takes the respective business sector as well as the product portfolio and the regional or international business areas into account. This general set-up can be affected by, for instance, a reorganization of the company, new heads at the management level, expansions and new business segments, but also by an altered regional disposition. If these changes apply, it is recommendable to revise the corporate collection and to adapt it, both in terms of range and value.

Ketterer Kunst helps you redirecting your corporate collection.
In order to express the character of your company, we can outline the potential directions your collection can take in a first free and non-binding consulting talk. Based on this talk, we will prepare an individual offer that allows for your corporate collection‘s needs:
