KOLLER Auctions has been an integral part of the Swiss art market half a century. In 1958 Pierre Koller, having spent his youth between the French and German parts of Switzerland (Lausanne and Zurich), decides to make a career out of his hobby. At age 34, he opens a gallery of equestrian engravings and antique furniture on Zurich's Dufourstrasse. The timing was right, and Pierre Koller took advantage of his excellent contacts to establish himself on the Zurich market.
In 2008 Koller celebrates its 50th anniversary. Its name is officially changed from "Galerie Koller" to "Koller Auctions." In September, a still life on copper by the Netherlandish artist Ambrosius Bosschaert, discovered by Koller's specialists in a private collection, sells for the world record price of CHF 5.7 million. Its jubilee anniversary also witnesses Koller's first auction dedicated entirely to contemporary art. Koller opens a representative office in Düsseldorf.
