Gallery PROFILE

Galerie Henze & Ketterer

Now in its third generation and a family business since 1946, Galerie Henze & Ketterer specializes in Modern art and contemporary art with a focus on German Expressionism. Since the mid-1950s, the gallery has managed the estate of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, one of the most important artists of this movement and co-founder of the artists' association "Brücke".

In this way, Galerie Henze & Ketterer contributes to showing the works of "Brücke", Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Expressionism in one form or another in international museums.

Classical Modern art, Informal Art (L'Art Informel) and Abstraction after 1945, New Figuration and contemporary art with painters and sculptors from Italy, Spain and Germany form the gallery's other focal points.

In addition to Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the gallery also manages the archives and estates of Berthold Müller-Oerlinghausen, Theo Eble and Fritz Winter. With the information from the"Archiv Stuttgarter Kunstkabinett Roman Norbert Ketterer", Galerie Henze & Ketterer makes an important contribution to international provenance research on the art of Modern art.

Since the early 1970s, the gallery has participated in international art fairs, including Art Basel, FIAC Paris, Masterpiece London and, to this day, TEFAF Maastricht, Art Cologne and Art Karlsruhe.

The gallery is represented online via various Online Viewing Rooms (OVR) as well as with profiles at artsy.net, artnet.com, ifpda.org, printed-editions.com, ocula.com, Instagram, Youtube and LinkedIn.

The gallery has two branches in Switzerland: Wichtrach/Bern and Riehen/Basel are managed by Ingeborg Henze-Ketterer, Dr. Wolfgang Henze and Dr. Alexandra Henze.

The Nude in Modern and Contemporary Art

Art Karlsruhe 2024 - Impressions

World Art for Peace & Freedom

From Abstraction-Création 1930 to the abstract world language 1960

This year's presentation under the title World Art for Peace & Freedom at our H1/B06 Hall 1 is dedicated to works from the Abstraction-Création 1930 to the abstract world language 1960 by 8 artists:

Francis Bott, Günther Gumpert, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Bernard Schultze, Fred Thieler, Hann Trier, Theodor Werner, Fritz Winter.

The presentation aims to tell the story of art in the middle of the 20th century, which developed over and through the violent caesura of the art ban, the Second World War and the Shoah, and yet somehow always remained coherent, using a number of very different case studies.

The Art fair is also accompanied by us digitally. Below you will find important materials and links that you can use to discover our presentation, the artists and their works online. We particularly recommend the Online Viewing Room, which guides you through the presented world art with explanations by Dr. Wolfgang Henze and anchors it profoundly through the biographies of the artists and their works in the context of the development of abstract art in the 20th century.

We hope you enjoy discovering them online!

Media response

Classical Modern art and post-war art has always had a special place at ART COLOGNE. One of its most important mediators is the Swiss Galerie Henze & Ketterer.

You can read the latest article about our stand in the Art Cologne Journal here.

How do I find classical art Modern art? In Hall 11.2, the Henze Ketterer Gallery from Switzerland presents Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's "Playing Bathers" from 1928, in which bodies in sun and shadow are dissolved in an endless contour of entwined color fields. The cheerful painting is both figurative and abstract. It is said to be one of the most highly endowed works at Art fair.
