My favourite work


Women artists, and particularly those who have been long underestimated or ignored, have been in the spotlight in recent years. Suddenly, the incredible oeuvre of Louise Bourgeois is being rediscovered, and the works of Swiss artist Miriam Cahn are once again getting the recognition they deserve – after years of these works and those by many other women artists being not quite forgotten, but left aside.

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.


Silke Stahlschmidt (Head of Department, PostWar & Contemporary)



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 >>
