ORANGERIE Selected Objects


Dr. Stefan Körner

Special auction bauhaus forever!

The Bauhaus turns 100 – and Grisebach’s ORANGERIE is joining in the celebration! We will present an exhibition culminating in an auction of select Bauhaus objects. Featured will be design prototypes, paintings, photography and graphic works as well as precious rare books. In a spirit of curiosity and enjoyment, we will also be highlighting some of the individuals who, surprisingly enough, functioned as art-historical forerunners, contemporaries, and successors of the “Bauhaus” concept.



Main Focus

The auction “ORANGERIE Selected Objects” displays, much like an actual orangery, the finest objects from across the world. There is no limit to epoch, genre, or medium of the artwork. The atmospheric objects have a conversational quality and their special arrangement encourages the formation of taste. They range from antiquities to autographs from the pens of luminaries. Outstanding works of European applied art, such as furniture by David Roentgen, stand alongside Asiatica.
While encouraging collectors to indulge in aesthetic crossover, the ORANGERIE also displays entire collections such as the legendary Rohde-Hinze Collection of Old Masters 2015 and the Bernd Schultz Collection of hand drawings 2018, which has been sold to benefit the  “Exilmuseum“ in Berlin.



Post auction sale

Works not sold at auction may be purchased at the reserve price for a period of two months – until end of July 2019 – during the post auction sale. These works are displayed in the catalogue view with the selection post auction sale. By selecting all lots, you'll be able to display all results.
