Galerie Henze & Ketterer, Riehen
Being aware of how important it is, especially for new collectors, to be in good and serious hands, we do our utmost to organize everything as smoothly, professionally and transparently as possible.
In the third generation and since 1946, we collaborate directly with many artist estates and most of the leading colleagues in our field as well as with a selection of internationally important living artists worldwide.
We have had the privilege to help in building and completing many of the most important museum and private collections concentrating on Expressionism.
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.
Concerning artists we don’t list in our gallery program, we may be able to find suitable works through our connections.
We work with a large stock of artworks owned by the gallery but also with works on commission from collections or directly from living artists.

Our main goal is to work fast with a maximum of transparency, reliability, seriousness and with a maximum of respect and love for the art we are dealing with and for the artists that created it.
For all artworks by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner we deliver the official authenticity guarantee edited by the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Archive that is situated in Galerie Henze & Ketterer Wichtrach / Berne, with the work.
For very important artworks we may provide condition reports by leading museum-restorers on the request of a seriously interested collector.
We guarantee fully for the immaculate authenticity, provenance and condition of the works we offer and sell. We guarantee fully for the condition of all works, any alternations or problems are transparently stated in the individual work description. As a rule we don’t offer any damaged or otherwise doubtful artworks at all for sale.

We may not guarantee that the investment in art will make you rich financially on a short term basis, but we can guarantee you that you will significantly increase your life-quality by collecting serious and sustainable works of art. It would be our great pleasure to support you in this effort.

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

Furthermore we participate physically in 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.
All works the Gallery and Art Advisory Henze & Ketterer lists on the above named platforms are physically available for viewing in our Gallery in Riehen / Basel preferably on appointment.

The Gallery and Art Advisory Henze & Ketterer 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, we will do our best to find the answer you are looking for also because we are long-standing and passionate collectors ourselves.
