Special auction bauhaus forever!
Sneak peek 10 April to 11 May, 2019
Grisebach, Fasanenstrasse 27, 10719 Berlin
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. Not so much as a retrospective but more 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.
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.
