Since 1946 and over three generations, Galerie Henze & Ketterer has been committed to German Expressionism and manages the estate and archive of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, one of the most important artists of this movement and initiator of the artist's association "Brücke". Modern Art, Informel and Abstraction after 1945, New Figuration, and contemporary painters and sculptors from Italy, Spain, and Germany are the gallery's other focal points. Since the early 1970s, the gallery has participated in international art fairs including Art Basel, FIAC Paris, Art Karlsruhe, Masterpiece London and to date TEFAF Maastricht and Art Cologne. The gallery maintains two branches in Switzerland: Wichtrach/Berne and Riehen/Basel are under the direction of Ingeborg Henze-Ketterer, Dr. Wolfgang Henze and Dr. Alexandra Henze. In the digital space, the gallery is present via an extensive website and its own Online Viewing Room (OVR) as well as with profiles at,, and

Emil Nolde: Etchings 1906-1922
Viewing Room Image 5
Fantastic scenes, which, however, again and again remind of such from myth, fairy tale, Bible or history, but probably not clearly determinable, increase in these years in the work of Emil Nolde.
