Cologne 1959. Art historian Carola van Ham founded the auction house Kunsthaus am Museum in the West German metropolis and home to the great cathedral. As Europe's first female auctioneers, van Ham asserted herself in what was once a male-dominated profession. With much optimism, sound art historical knowledge, and business acumen, she led her company to a top position among German auction houses. For a half a century, VAN HAM has worked successfully in the art market. Our dynamic history is documented in a comprehensive illustrated book, which was published in 2009. In addition, the text shares fascinating anecdotes taken from the family business's five decades of art market activity.
