From 20 December 2023 to 7 January 2024: Third Floor Online Only Auction

Selected works from this auction were on view at the exhibition “Vanitas Fair” from 9 to 16 December in Berlin.

Main Focus

True to the motto "only that which changes remains“, we are pleased to be offering our "Third Floor“ selections in ONLINE ONLY auctions via our website since 2020. Every six to eight weeks the lots are presented for a period of 10 days. The highest bidder is awarded the lot at the end of auction.

The "Third Floor“ is, and always has been, a place for explorers. Since 1987 it has been a meeting place where both passionate collectors and spontaneous enthusiasts have been pleasantly surprised to find prints by David Hockney or Cindy Sherman that are not beyond their budget, and where hopeful bids placed on a small pen-and-ink sketch by Alexej Jawlensky just might win. In our Third Floor catalogue, we often indulge in the pleasure of presenting novel works by unknown or forgotten artists that we find fascinating. Often the buyers and sellers in these auctions are collectors of new art.

The first Online Only auction at Grisebach, which took place from the 19th of June to the 5th of July 2020, can already report spectacularly high bidding rates. Out of 120 works offered, 108 were sold – that means 90% of the lots.
