Record expectation from Max Beckmann

Max Beckmann‘s self-portrait will be sold at an auction on December 1 by Grisebach, Berlin’s leading auction house. The painting, which is expected to find buyers between 20 million and 30 million Euros, will sign Germany’s biggest sale so far.
It’s also the highest estimate worldwide for the German expressionist painter. The self-portrait that Max Beckmann made while in exile in the Netherlands in 1943 also offers an unprecedented opportunity for the expansion of the narrow German market.
