Contemporary Art

from 1945 to the present day is a feature of our selection. Of course, record prices for the greats of Austrian avant-garde are achieved at Kinsky, whether for Maria Lassnig, Arnulf Rainer, Markus Prachensky or Wolfgang Hollegha. Important works from the American Pop Art landscape around Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein are as likely to come up for auction as paintings from the German and Austrian group of painters of the New Wild, centred around Rainer Fetting, Gunter Damisch and Siegfried Anzinger. The breaking of taboos and the challenging of conventional ways of seeing represent a thread, extending through the history of contemporary art, and characterised by a multiplicity of expressive techniques and materials.

There are two exclusive auctions per year, in March and October, dedicated to contemporary art.
