At the premiere of our Auction Alliance, we are delighted to be able to present you with such an exciting and high-quality range of works, spanning the spectrum from Classical Modernism to sought-after contemporaries. But get your own impression of the first-class offerings of this year’s autumn season with this special Highlights catalogue. Let yourself be inspired by the exquisite art from the houses of VAN HAM and Karl & Faber!

With the Auction Alliance, Karl & Faber and VAN HAM are taking a new approach. The aim is to increase the joint reach for the offer, to reach more potential buyers and thus to expand the advantages for consignors and collectors. In the autumn, there will be two joint previews of selected highlights from the Modern and Contemporary Art auctions of both houses as part of the Auction Alliance. They will be accompanied by an attractive programme at the main houses in Cologne and Munich, and a lavishly designed highlights catalogue will attract additional attention. The marketing alliance will bring the reach of both houses to the forefront of the German auction market in the interest of their clients.
