Auction Description

It is with great pleasure that Fondation Beyeler present the works of art for their 2018 Benefit Auction at their Summer Night’s Gala. Once again, these collector’s items have been donated by internationally acclaimed artists, collectors and galleries with whom Fondation Beyeler enjoys a close working relationship. They are joined by some much sought-after Art Editions from the Fondation Beyeler Art Shop.

The benefit auction gives you the opportunity to purchase some very special works of art and at the same time to support Fondation Beyeler’s ambitious program of world-class exhibitions, which affords large numbers of people an unforgettable experience of art.

Thank you for your support.

Provided that the bid equals or exceeds the reserve price, the item under the hammer shall be knocked down to the highest bidder (the “Buyer”) in Swiss francs as acknowledged by the auctioneer within the framework of the auction. The fall of the auctioneer’s hammer constitutes a purchase agreement between Beyeler Museum AG and the Buyer.
