Established in Munich in 2012 by Dr. Alexander Kunkel, KUNKEL FINE ART specializes in the purchase and sale of paintings, drawings and sculptures of the 19th and 20th centuries. In addition, KUNKEL FINE ART is happy to act in an advisory or intermediary capacity negotiating purchases and sales on a commission basis. The main focus of the business is on German artists with a special connection to Italy. KUNKEL FINE ART also has a strong interest in Salon artists and secessionists, as well as artists whose work was published in the illustrated magazines Jugend and Simplicissimus.
KUNKEL FINE ART’s dealing strategy is directed towards artistic quality and art-historical importance. Our interests focus around established masters whose work is held in leading public collections but we also showcase lesser-known or overlooked artists whose work deserves rediscovery. In this, we work closely with international scholars, curators and museum experts.
The KUNKEL FINE ART website offers a continually updated overview of the artworks available. Access to technical descriptions and artists’ biographies is quick and easy. The ‘Video Library’ section contains short video clips presenting individual artworks. These artworks are marked . Voice-over commentaries introduce the works and explain their background, origin and art-historical context. The ‘Young Collectors’ section lists all drawings, paintings and sculptures priced below €10,000. They are marked . This is designed to provide greater price transparency as well as offer young collectors access to information about current market values and give them an opportunity to compare prices.
Website visitors can subscribe to the KUNKEL FINE ART Newsletter online. The site posts regular updates about the company’s activities and its art fair schedule. KUNKEL FINE ART participates year-round at leading international art fairs. We also stage themed exhibitions and special events.
