DUSSELDORF.- The exhibition “Hommage à Picasso“ is dedicated to the universal genius and multi talent, who passed away some 40 years ago. It will be on display at Ketterer Kunst, first in Duesseldorf in August and then in Berlin-Charlottenburg until October. Homage is rendered by an array of internationally acclaimed artists, who paid their tribute to the great master shortly after his death in the early 1970s by providing an artwork each for a joint portfolio. It delivers proof of the effect that Picasso’s œuvre had on their work and of how they saw him. As diverse as the works by, among others, Gerhard Altenbourg, HAP Grieshaber, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Heinz Mack, Joan Miró, Robert Rauschenberg, Emil Schumacher, Frank Stella, Jean Tinguely, Cy Twombly and Günter Uecker may seem, what they share is the legendary Pablo Picasso as source of inspiration and great respect for his artistic creation. Since it was founded in 1954, Ketterer Kunst has been firmly established in the front ranks of auction houses dealing in fine art and rare books, with its headquarters in Munich and a branch in Hamburg. Gallery rooms in Berlin as well as representatives in Heidelberg, Düsseldorf and Modena (Italy) contribute substantially to the company’s success. In addition, exhibitions, special theme and charity auctions as well as permanent online auctions on http://www.ketterer-internet- auction.com are regular events at Ketterer Kunst. Robert Ketterer is auctioneer and owner of Ketterer Kunst. (Courtesy of ArtDaily)
