Hans-Peter Keller, Head of Swiss Art, Christie’s Zurich: "Tonight´s sale demonstrated once more the high demand for Swiss works with an exceptional provenance like the top lot Genfersee mit Jura (1911) by Ferdinand Hodler, which sold for SFr  2,640,000 and was once owned by the Zurich entrepreneur and collector Fritz Meyer-Fierz, whose collection included more than 20 important Hodler paintings. Rare and market fresh works were particularly sought after as illustrated by Mutter und Kind (1911), which sold for SFr 720,000 and has remained in one family for a century. The market for Swiss Art remains strong and quality works with appealing estimates attract both established and new buyers.“

About Christie’s

Founded in 1766, Christie’s is a world-leading art and luxury business. Renowned and trusted for its expert live and online auctions, as well as its bespoke private sales, Christie’s offers a full portfolio of global services to its clients, including art appraisal, art financing, international real estate and education.
