From his early childhood days, Daniel von Schacky was exposed to modern art and the art market. In 2002, after almost a decade in the United States, he decided to pursue his passion for modern and contemporary art. Following stations in London and New York, he joined leading German auctioneer Villa Grisebach in 2006 to build up and expand a department for contemporary art. After a decade in the auction house, most recently as an auctioneer and partner in the business, Daniel decided to strike out on his own and founded Schacky Art & Advisory in 2016.

Through his considerable annual travel and his extensive international experience Daniel von Schacky has access to a large international network, including major American and European collections. His special focus lies on the blue chip German artists of the 20th Century including Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz and the Modern artists of the Brücke and the Blaue Reiter movement.
