At first sight the wicked Capitano by HAP Grieshaber and Dodos elfish Figurine do not have much in common, however, both are bound to take a childs heart by storm. So it might be a good idea for parents to have a look at www.ketterer-internet-auctions.com
from July 15 on. Up until August 15 at 3 pm the Ketterer Kunst ONLINE-ONLY special theme auction offers Art for the Smallest Collectors starting at pocket money prices of 1.
Nowadays art is everywhere. It makes our lives richer, more colorful and more exciting. But what about the rooms our children live in? Are the kids really too young to be surrounded by fine arts? Exactly the opposite is the case, as we approach new things with a lot of curiosity, creativity and impartiality at a young age, abilities that often wane in the course of time. What could be a better way to improve a childs perception and to stimulate communication?
I am very happy about this first auction that is only about the interests of the youngest collectors, while at same time offering high-quality works by acclaimed artists, says company owner Robert Ketterer.
The motifs in this unusual special theme online auction are as colorful and joyous as the artists they come from are renowned. Next to Erich Heckels drypoint etching of a jolly Römischen Tänzerin (Roman Dancer) and Max Klingers aquatint etching Intermezzi with grumbler and hammock, Max Ernsts color silkscreen Ein Mond ist guter Dinge and Georg Schrimpfs color woodcut Spielendes Kind also spread joy and happiness.
We enter animal kingdom through various bird pictures by, among others, Georges Braque, Corneille and Heimrad Prem. Walt Disney is represented with two gouaches showing Das Fußballspiel der Tiere from the classic Animalympics and the lion Prinz John. Alexander Besel contributes Schmetterlinge im Abendlicht and Pablo Picasso several bulls and horses from his Tauromaquia.
Bright colors and a lust for life are characteristic of the works by Horst Antes, Sonia Delaunay-Terk, Friedensreich Hundert-wasser, Max Peiffer-Watenphul and A. R. Penck. Cornelia Schleimes work of a girl with pigtails and a dog calls reminiscence of Pippi Longstocking while Ralf Peters Schwimmbad, Christian Boltanskis Les Vacances à Berck-Plage (Août 1975) and Eduard Bargheers Bewegtes Meer vor Forio dIschia let us dream of summer holidays.
The range of gaudy offers is completed by works from exciting artists like Klaus Fußmann, Franz Hitzler, Markus Lüpertz, Marino Marini, Hermann Max Pechstein, Thomas Schütte and Victor Vasarely.
