Grisebach was founded 1986 in Berlin and holds semi-annual auctions (sping / fall) in the areas of fine art of the 19th, 20th and 21st century, ORANGERIE-Selected Objects as well as photography. Grisebach has been the top-selling auction house for Modern Art in Germany since 1988. All of this would have been impossible without the great dedication of a highly professional team in each and every department.
From the perspective of cultural history, Grisebach has actually exerted a lasting influence on the way in which German Classical Modernist art is currently perceived around the world. Thus, Grisebach can rightfully claim to have appreciably contributed to the art market’s high regard for modern German art from the Impressionist and Expressionist periods, as well as for the Realist and New Objectivity schools. Grisebach is a recognized authority with regard to these artistic periods and their respective histories of collecting. Small wonder then, that museums, private collectors, dealers, and academic institutions alike are keen to draw on the collective expertise of Grisebach’s many specialists.
Grisebach’s long track record of success rests above all on the company’s philosophy, on the tireless commitment, intellectual curiosity, and many years of experience of our staff. Our reputation for reliability is due in large part to their painstaking efforts to build close, trust-based contacts with collectors, experts, museums and academic institutions, artists, restorers, and provenance researchers, both in Germany and worldwide. By now, this network comprises 30,000 people and institutions across Europe, the USA, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Australia. In addition to maintaining branch offices in Düsseldorf, Munich, Zürich and New York, representatives in Hamburg, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Rome, Paris, and Los Angeles are ready to provide our services. They will be happy to assist you at any time with trustworthy and discreet advice, while also providing a no-obligation appraisal of your works of art.
