Modern art kicked off the following “Modern Week”: Paula Modersohn-Becker's “Grazing White Horse in the Moonlight” from 1901 was just under the estimate of 250,000 to 350,000 euros at 220,000 euros, but it nevertheless became the most expensive lot among the 85 Offered. Max Liebermann's “Boy with a Horse on the Beach” and Lovis Corinth's “Odalisque” from 1920, a portrait of his wife Charlotte Berend-Corinth, also fell short of their expectations with 180,000 euros each (200,000 / 300,000 each). Alexej Jawlensky's early still life in bright colors from 1907 was raised well above the estimate of 180,000 euros (100,000 / 120,000) and is now in a private collection in southern Germany. The 48 by 33 centimeterA predominantly pink watercolor with the humorous title “Das Kleine Blau” by Wassily Kandinsky from 1924 was worth 160,000 euros (80,000 / 120,000) to a Berlin collector. Renée Sintenis' “Dancer” is also going to Berlin: the hammer for the 1913 bronze, which is only nineteen centimeters high and which is probably the artist's earliest surviving work, only fell at 43,000 euros (10,000 / 15,000), almost three times the upper tax.

Among the 278 lots with contemporary art, Günther Uecker's market-fresh "Lichtscheibe für Lutz Dresen", which he made especially for the well-known Düsseldorf collector and close friend in 1994, was the top lot with 250,000 euros (200,000 / 300,000). A three-part lead painting in white, turquoise and brown by Günther Förg from 1986 goes to France for 150,000 euros (80,000 / 120,000). Roy Lichtenstein's large color silkscreen “Sweet Dreams, Baby!” Came to 85,000 euros (edition 200; 80,000 / 120,000), while Adrian Ghenie's small painting of an angel in 2002 in the old master style brought it to 60,000 euros (50,000 / 70,000). The transparent water droplets, trademark and motif on the 1973 painting by Tschang-Yeul Kim, doubled their upper estimate at 120,000 euros (40,000 / 60,000).
