The Munich Auction-House VON ZEZSCHWITZ Art and Design was founded in September 2001 by Dr. Beate Dry-von Zezschwitz, Carolin Bergner M.A., and Dr. Graham Dry, three internationally renowned experts in the field of 19. and 20. Century Decorative Arts, all with extensive experience in the art and auction business.
The particular speciality of the House are the twice-yearly auctions ‘Art Nouveau – Art Déco’ devoted to the Decorative Arts of the early 20th. Century, as well as the twice-yearly auctions ‘Modern Design’ which include handcrafted work of the post-1945 period up to the present day as well as Industrial Design from all periods.
A further regular auction, held twice a year, is devoted to ‘Art of the 19. and 20. Centuries’ which includes paintings, sculpture, posters, drawings and prints, as well as illustrated books.
A regular wide selection of rare and out of print ‘Reference Books on the Decorative Arts’ is a recent addition to our auction activities.
All auctions are accompanied by scholarly, well-designed catalogues illustrated in full colour.
As a real eldorado for art collectors and enthousiasts , VON ZEZSCHWITZ ART AUCTIONS offer a wide range of high-quality art including finest pieces of porcelain designed by renowned artists, delicate Art Nouveau glass in various colours, elegant Art Deco silverware, sober Bauhaus furniture, Italian designer lamps, along with paintings, sculptures and graphic art by famous artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.
For each auction there is a fully illustrated catalogue in exclusive design with high-quality photos, accompanied by texts based on expert research satisfying highest standards in exactness and art expertise. On the internet, all offers can be viewed in the online catalogue.
With their office, their exhibition and auction rooms at Friedrichstrasse 1A, VON ZEZSCHWITZ AUCTIONS are present in the heart of Munich/Schwabing, where art has always been at home – not far from the University, the Academy of Fine Arts, the world-famous Pinakothekes, next to antique-shops and galleries.
All auction items can be viewed on the premises one week before the actual auction. Beyond the auctions there is always a large choice of interesting objects and works of art to be purchased at a fixed price.
Consignments can be made throughout the year. The experts of VON ZEZSCHWITZ may be asked at any time for a free-of-charge evaluation of art objects or an individual consultation.
