Munich, 17 May 2016 (kk) - A Modern Art collection of 47 high quality artworks that are absolutely new on the market will be offered in the auctions at Ketterer Kunst from June 9 to 11 June. It is presented in an extra catalog.

With a sure eye for quality and aesthetics, the works have been compiled over a period of forty years. It is a unique collection, which, in best tradition of company collections, has adorned the premises of a German company. A member of the directorate, whose expertise and passion is for German Expressionism, was in charge of the collection.

Alongside several paintings by Hans Purrmann and Otto Modersohn, works on paper are the focal point of this small but very fine collection. Those who will fall for its charm have an excellent opportunity to buy works with moderate estimates by internationally acclaimed German expressionists. Next to the aforementioned, the collection comprises works by Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Otto Dix, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Otto Mueller, Hermann Max Pechstein and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.
