    What we offer

    Our fields of focus include 19th and 20th century art as well as contemporary art. The auctions include paintings, sculptures, drawings, graphic art and illustrated books. We also focus on Swiss art and regularly auction Old Master prints and drawings.

    Buyers at our auctions value the high quality of the art and the incomparable expertise and binding service offered by our auction house. Our offerings are distinguished by fresh-to-market, rare works in very good condition.


    Catalogues prepared based on the lastes scientific findings are published for every auction. These catalogues are ready in the first half of May, a good month before the auctions. Printed catalogues are sent to our loyal customers. Catalogue orders are welcome. All catalogues are also available online.

    The online catalogues have added advantages such as a text search function, bigger images and images providing additional details. You can also create your personal profile at myKORNFELD for setting up searches and bid lists and for submitting written and telephone bids.
