Auction: 2 – 10 November 2022
The first lot expires at 6pm.

Abstraction as an enduring fascination. In the online auction, more than 100 lots will be offered, focusing on painterly works of modern and contemporary art whose pictorial content breaks away from the object-relatedness of earlier centuries. By removing and renouncing the representational, the artists achieve a detachment from a naturalistic, reality-based representation. Shapes, colors, lines and contrasts alone are declared to be the content of the picture. The goal is an alienation up to the unrecognizability. The absolute painting, as the abstract painting is sometimes called, allows the artist a greater freedom in the expression of his innermost and represents a form of expression far from guidelines and motif specifications. The origins of abstraction lie in the first decade of the 20th century. Even in the recent present, abstraction is an important means of expression for contemporary artists.
