PostWar & Contemporary
Our auctions of contemporary art from the post-war period to the present day are held in June/July and December. The sold rate at these dedicated auctions regularly exceeds 90%. We offer works by internationally renowned artists ranging from Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism/Concrete Art, Pop Art and Conceptual Art to the most current art movements. Our auction highlights of recent years include works by Lucio Fontana, Fernando Botero, Willi Baumeister, James Rosenquist, Georg Baselitz, John Chamberlain, Tom Wesselmann, Keith Haring, Tony Cragg, Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Serge Poliakoff, Pierre Soulages, Robert Mangold and Christo.
Silke Stahlschmidt and Clarisse Doge are pleased to provide a no-obligation valuation of your works in view of a possible auction consignment. For important works we develop an individual and detailed marketing proposal.
We accept consignments until the end of April for the June/July auction and until the end of September for the December auction.

I personally came to Leiko Ikemura’s works via a different path – they didn't suddenly appear on my radar, rather I somehow felt they were always there. Even in my early career, I came across small drawings by Ikemura from time to time, and even if I didn't always pay the greatest attention to them, they stayed with me. Certain exhibitions of the last few years have once again brought Ikemura’s work before a wide audience, and have given me a deeper insight into her comprehensive pictorial and sculptural oeuvre. Especially if you like works on paper, in the work of this Berlin-based Japanese artist you will find an almost infinite range of subjects: from the beautiful to the frightening, the dreamy to the nightmarish, and from the touching to the hard-to-bear.
And it is precisely for this reason that this wonderful pastel from 1984 is one of my favourite works.

Since the beginning of 2019 KOLLER AUCTIONS has been hosting the series of exhibitions KOLLERNOW at its Munich offices on Maximiliansplatz 20, with young artists from the Munich Academy of Arts.
An initiative which is independent of the twice-yearly auctions of Postwar & Contemporary Art held in Zurich, with this series of exhibitions, KOLLER AUCTIONS offers graduates and students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich the opportunity to present their work. On each occasion, the curator, Dina Renninger, invites three to five artists from the academy and enables them to come together in an exciting dialogue. Read more about it >>
