Hans-Peter Keller took over the Swiss Art department at Christie’s in 2001. Prior to that, he was director of a local auction house in Zürich. Mr. Keller is the specialist in charge of Swiss paintings, works on paper and sculptures, from the 18th century to the present day, as well as being responsible for the auctions Christie’s holds twice a year in Zürich. Under his leadership the department has established many world records for Swiss art. Mr. Keller is an art historian who studied art history and archaeology at the University of Zürich. His final dissertation Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: Theaterkulissen is a seminal research paper on Kirchner’s theatre sets, placed in their art historical context for the first time.
