Galerie Henze & Ketterer & Triebold

Riehen, CH

Our family is proud to be administrators of the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Estate since the mid-1950ies. Therefore, we have the honour and the privilege to contribute to most international museum shows to the theme of “Brücke”, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Expressionism in one way or the other. But we also act intensely and with the same dedication with a strong selection of abstract and contemporary artists.

The Gallery and Art Advisory Henze & Ketterer & Triebold always shows a good selection of strong works by the artists it represents on Artnet, Artsy, Printed Editions, the IFPDA’s site and on its website (, but we are also active on Instagram.

Furthermore, we participate physically in important international art fairs like Tefaf Maastricht, Masterpiece London, Art Cologne and others. In the gallery we show regularly monographic or thematic shows by important modern, post-war or contemporary artists.

The Gallery and Art Advisory Henze & Ketterer & Triebold is most happy to support and advise passionate young collectors and naturally also already experienced collectors in all questions that might arise in building and curating a collection of modern and/or contemporary art. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have, we will do our best to find the answer you are looking for as we are long-standing and passionate collectors ourselves.

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880-1938) and Georg Baselitz (*1938) influenced and continue to influence entire generations of artists in their œuvre, whereas both of their artistic expression was created separately from one another, and prepared the way for an art that was colourful, provocative, and consistently rebelled against the traditional and developed new modes of expression. The often different results of this creative work, to which both artists dedicated themselves throughout their lives, will in their dialogue with each other, however, also reveal one thing to the visitor: a common reality.
Meanwhile, the motifs of the two also seem to overlap: the human being in the focus of the creative work. However, while in Kirchner's work nature occupies an almost equal position, Baselitz's motifs are mostly created by destroying existing images. The artist does not even stop at his own images, as the series "Remix" shows, in which he revisits past motifs from his œuvre and turns them into a kind of representation of an interaction with his own past.
Despite the many stylistic transformations to which Georg Baselitz's work has been subjected over the decades, a unified, unmistakable body of work has emerged that, with its individuality and uniqueness and especially its innovation, is quite like that of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
