IColour - a painter says I.
No buyer`s premium: Charity auction and 80th birthday of Peter Robert Keil:
Oil paintings, graphics, majolica ceramics.
This charity auction takes place in cooperation with the Keil Collection Heidelberg and offers selected oil paintings, graphics and majolica ceramics by Peter Robert Keil. Born in 1942, the artist belongs to the neo-expressionist school of the "Junge Wilden". His extensive oeuvre is characterised by spontaneous lines and a colour intensity of high expressivity. It is all about emotion and liveliness, which the artist impressively unfolds in his paintings and ceramics as well as, more recently, in his prints.
The auction will take place on the occasion of the large anniversary exhibition "IchFarbe" in Heidelberg Castle. Before the auction, the renowned Heidelberg art historian and gallery owner Dr. Kristina Hoge will introduce the artist and guide the participants live (online) through the exhibition in the castle. In this way, you can all immerse yourself in the world of Peter Robert Keil before you then have the unique opportunity to purchase a work by the artist at auction for a good cause.
One half of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Xylon Museum in Schwetzingen, where the work of the painter and graphic artist Otto Mindhoff, who died in 2019, is being preserved and a printing workshop gives young artists the opportunity to print their own graphics. The other half of the proceeds will be used to finance the exhibition.
The auction will take place on Saturday, 1 October 2022 from 19:00. To participate in the auction, please use, as usual, the possibilities of written pre-bidding, live bidding via our homepage www.historia.de, as well as telephone bidding by appointment. Alternatively, you can participate in person in the extensive programme of the vernissage at Heidelberg Castle from 16:00. Here you can get a personal impression of the paintings, graphics & majolica ceramics in the run-up to the auction. From 19:00 you can then bid live on site. Please have a look at the extensive vernissage programme and register before your visit at the following link:
We are especially proud to announce that the legendary auctioneer Michael Lehrberger has agreed to moderate the auction on site in Heidelberg.
