German Fine Art Fair Previews Striking Array of Art, Design, Collectibles

COLOGNE – The Cologne Fine Art fair was previewed on Wednesday with a spectacular array of pieces of art, design and collectibles from all epochs.

The art fair, taking place in the heart of Cologne in western Germany, is set to feature arts, crafts and antiquities from two millennia represented by 88 galleries from nine countries.

Organizers of the art fair said they had used high-tech features and digital add-ons to provide the viewer with all the tools for a fully interactive and rich experience.

A promotional video for the art fair teased prospective visitors with “a temporary cabinet of curiosities with art, design and collectibles of all epochs and genres is awaiting you.”

Prominent names from the contemporary arts scene also feature, including a Marc Chagall painting priced at 500,000 euros ($570,936); a mauve-hued abstract painting by German artist Gerard Richter with a whopping 3.8 million euro price tag; and resin sculptures by the American pop artist Mel Ramos, who has traditionally juxtaposed raunchy female nudes with familiar products like bananas and ketchup bottles.

On this occasion, Ramos has created polychrome synthetic resin sculptures, making his depictions of women three dimensional.

The Cologne Art Fair runs from Nov. 22-25 at Cologne’s trade fair exhibition grounds.
