Since 1946, over three generations, Galerie Henze & Ketterer, as a family business, has been committed to German Expressionism and manages, among other things, the estate and archive of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, one of the most important artists of this movement and initiator of the Brücke group of artists.
Classical Modernism, Informel and Abstraction after 1945, New Figuration, and contemporary painters and sculptors from Italy, Spain, and Germany are the gallery's other focal points. We work closely with the world's leading dealers in our specialties. Our house has had the privilege of being instrumental in the creation and growth of many large and important museum and private collections, particularly of Expressionism
Since the early 1970s, the gallery has participated in international art fairs including Art Basel, FIAC Paris, Art Karlsruhe, London Masterpiece and to date TEFAF Maastricht and Art Cologne.
The gallery maintains two branches in Switzerland: Wichtrach/Bern and Riehen/Basel are under the direction of Ingeborg Henze-Ketterer, Dr. Wolfgang Henze and Dr. Alexandra Henze.
In the digital space, the gallery is present via an extensive website and its own Online Viewing Room (OVR) as well as with profiles at artsy.net, artnet.com, ifpda.org and printed-editions.com.
