Swiss Art


Koller’s auctions dedicated to Swiss Art are a must for consignors as well as buyers in this field. Every important Swiss artist is regularly rep­resented in the catalogues for our June and December auctions. For many of these artists, Koller holds the world record for prices realised at auction, and in so-called “fringe” categories such as 19th-century Swiss landscape painting, we also consistently register excellent results. The tradition of collecting Swiss Art runs deep in Switzerland, and there is scarcely an area of the country where our specialists have not received a work to include in one of our auctions.
