About the auction

The "Cologne Progressives" with their famous member August Sander were one of the most distinct artist groups of the Weimar Republic (1919–1933): The major themes of the time become apparent in the works of Franz Wilhelm Seiwert, Heinrich Hoerle, Gerd Arntz and their friends.

We are delighted to dedicate a special auction to the extraordinary Sander Collection, whose origins go back to the photographer August Sander (1876–1964). More than just a few of the works from the collection will be summoned to the art market for the very first time. Among them is Franz Wilhelm Seiwert´s monumental "Wandbild für einen Fotografen" from 1925, which hung in Cologne´s Museum Ludwig as a loan for a long time – a masterpiece by the artist, an icon of the era and a key painting of the Cologne Progressives!
