19th Century Art

In comparison to other auction houses, Grisebach’s department of 19th century art stands out due to its careful focus and we can claim the most successful bidding rate in this field by some measure. Our aim is to present a compact survey of the 19th century in our catalogues, in which we strive to select works that bear witness to the modernity and vitality of the period’s various artistic movements. We have two substantive areas of focus: the art of the Romantic period with a special emphasis on the Dresden School on the one hand, and the diverse art of the German Fin de Siècle on the other. The oil study in particular is a recurring focus. Created directly from nature, these works often retain a greater vigor and immediacy than studio works, and they have a strong impact on viewers even today. Thanks to our strict quality criteria and the particular modernity of oil studies, Grisebach has been able to appeal increasingly to a younger generation of collectors through our auctions of 19th century works.
