Impressionist & Modern Art

Impressionist & Modern Art

Since 1993, this department has been one of the strongest in terms of our company’s sales. The pluralism of styles and the rapid development in art between 1900 and 1945 make this period particularly interesting for collectors. When selecting pieces of art to offer to our clients we strive to meet their high qualitative standards. For us, the acquisition of rare, market-fresh works of art is both a motivation and a challenge.

Our auctions take place three times a year. We offer important works of international modern art, with a special focus on the Viennese Modern Age, featuring Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka. Another special focus of our auction house are Austrian artists of the New Objectivity school: we achieve top prices for paintings by Franz Sedlacek and Rudolf Wacker. Tyrolean Modernism, particularly Alfons Walde, and Albin Egger-Lienz, is also one of our key offerings. Our successes with paintings by Kolo Moser and, for example, paintings by Norbertine Bresslern-Roth testify to the fact that Modern Art guarantees world-record prices at our auction house.

Our expertise is based on long-standing experience, sound specialist knowledge and intensive research. We collaborate closely with national and international experts and institutions and do of course take the latest research findings into account in order to do justice to our quality orientation. Last but not least, it’s important to us to advise our clients on the current market situation regarding art works of Modern Art in a reliable and uncomplicated way.
