“You can at the auction already make a real bargain, go with artworks under the gallery price away. Some of the artists today are already so well known, whose works will be much more valuable in three to four years,” explains Dirk Luckow.

Some proceeds from it receives the Michael Stich Foundation, founded in 1994. It participates in addition to the auction. Due to his contacts with artists and galleries Michael Stich has helped to acquire works for the auction.
