We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to view prices. It is not by our choice. Many of our artists and vendors don’t allow us to publish prices. We are working with them to ultimately have prices for everything on the web site and until then, you may inquire by e-mail and we will answer as quickly as possible.
PRICE RESEARCH / APPRAISALS / GENERAL INTEREST – PLEASE READ
If you are trying to determine the value of a work you own, or doing research for an appraisal or just trying to get an idea of the general price level of the gallery, please contact us through the general contact form here:
We will direct your request to the appropriate person to help you. Much work and research goes into determining the value of a work of art and an appraisal takes into consideration many factors besides the price of a comparable work. Please be respectful with the time of our art consultants.
Willi Kissmer was born in 1951 in Duisburg, Germany where he remains today as well as the South of France. Kissmer is known for technically exquisite etchings, oil and acrylic paintings that mostly depict nudes or half nudes, which are oftentimes draped in swaths of lush fabric. The details are accentuated in ultra-realistic texture using a combination of mezzotint, dry point and aquatint, which highlight the juxtaposition between flesh and cloth. Finding inspiration in his immediate surroundings, Kissmer’s model is usually his wife. Presented as a subject of eroticism and detailed study, he articulates our communal relationship with objects of desire. After his studies at the renowned Folkwang art school, Kissmer made a name for himself both as a musician and an artist. After numerous educational trips to Russia, Egypt, South America, Greece, Italy and Turkey he taught printmaking at the University of Duisburg. He has had numerous exhibitions in the United States and England. In his work, the artist prefers the torso. He consciously omits the representation of the head, abstains from individual facial features, and the rendition of hands, the gestures of which could impair the composition and thus the statement. The omission of individuality as well as psyche, the concentration on universal anonymity, and the emphasis on the body indicate Kissmer’s actual concern to deliver symbols of elementary human life, which find beautiful expression in the blooming female body.
