As one of the oldest auction houses in Berlin, Galerie Bassenge offers a selection of valuable books, autographs, art and photography. Founded in 1963, the family-owned company is now under third generation management. Originally specializing in books and works on paper, the auction house has continuously expanded and distinguished itself internationally in the fields of painting, modern and contemporary art, as well as photography (catalogues in English). Biannual auctions are held in spring and fall. In addition to the general program, catalogues offering important private collections and special themes are published regularly.
