The auction of Old Masters & Art of the 19th Century with the special auction Collection Max Geiger provided a great opening of the spring auction season in Munich. The overall result is at € 1.2 million and thus excelled last year’s result by around one third. Each sold object realized a remarkable average increase of more than 80%. The Collection Max Geiger, a Munich local by choice, was particularly popular with bidders from Southern Germany. It motivated almost 30% of them to place a bid in an auction at Ketterer Kunst for the first time. Additionally, it realized overall proceeds of around € 400,000 and a sales quota of almost 70% per object. The collection’s first place is shared by two lots which both achieved a result of € 57,500: Both Karl Altmann’s painting “St. Leonhardsfest in Fischhausen am Schliersee” (lot 19) as well as Franz von Defregger’s work
