Picasso & Co for as little as € 100 from Ketterer Kunst
(kk) - After the resounding success of our first live online auction in September - more than 500 bidders were online then - art.auctions at Ketterer Kunst is following it up with a second online live auction on November 4, 2006. Carrying estimates ranging between only € 100 and € 3,000, some 150 objects will go under the hammer from 4 pm on that day under the auspices of the Modern Art & Post War auction.
With this live online auction Ketterer Kunst hopes to involve a young public with the fascination of the art world since great art can be acquired online at bargain prices.
To take one example, the Pablo Picasso lithograph "Dibujos de Picasso" carries an estimate of € 700. And, whereas the estimate for the 1955 Erich Heckel woodcut "Zinnien" [“Zinnias”] is € 1000, at this auction Friedensreich Hundertwasser's color serigraphy "Good Morning City" is being offered for sale at € 1,200-1,500.

Pre-sale viewings of the works to be sold at auction are scheduled for November 2 and 3 from 11 am to 5 pm at Ketterer Kunst, Am Meßberg 1, Hamburg.
Since it was founded in 1954, Ketterer Kunst has been firmly established in the front ranks of auction houses dealing in art and rare books. While our Munich headquarters in the Prinz-Alfons-Palais is responsible for the two traditional annual auctions of Modern Art & Post War, the Meßberghof in Hamburg is the venue for two auctions a year each based on the following fields: Old Masters and Art of the 19th Century/Marine Art and Rare Books - Autographs - Manuscripts - Decorative Prints as well as Modern Art & Post War, with a focus on works on paper. In addition, exhibitions, special auctions and benefit auctions for charity are regular events at Ketterer Kunst.
