Henze & Ketterer – Profile
Since 1946, over three generations, the family business Henze & Ketterer has been committed to German Expressionism, including managing the estate and archive of one of the movement’s greatest artists, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Abstraction after 1945, New Figuration as well as contemporary painters and sculptors from Italy, Spain and Germany are further focal points of the gallery.
The gallery sees its activity as a constant endeavour on behalf of the artists, the works and fields of art it represents, an activity that involves not least the acquisition of its own large collections of art works or whole estates and also the upkeep of archives on the individual artists and a fully comprehensive library.
During the last decades, and especially since it relocated to Switzerland in 1993, our gallery has evolved to become an internationally renowned and sought-after centre of competence for the representation of artists and art genres. Numerous worldwide museum exhibitions and publications not only originated here but were also curated by our gallery, either entirely or in collaboration. Particularly worthy of mention is the close collaboration between our Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Archive in Wichtrach/Berne and the Kirchner Museum in Davos, founded by Roman Norbert Ketterer.
The gallery has been taking part in international art fairs since the early 1970s, including Art Basel, FIAC Paris, Art Karlsruhe and until today TEFAF Maastricht, London Masterpiece and Art Cologne. Additionally we maintain profiles at the online marketplaces of artsy.net, artnet.com, ifpda.org und printed-editions.com.
The gallery maintains two branches in Switzerland: Bern / Wichtrach is under the management of Ingeborg Henze-Ketterer and Dr. Wolfgang Henze and Basel / Riehen, managed by Dr. Alexandra Henze Triebold and Marc Triebold.
