From Vienna’s galleries

Lovers of contemporary art will find what they are looking for in Schleifmühlgasse, Vienna’s new modern art hotspot. Galleries like Kargl and Senn have all set up shops in this area, a stone’s throw from the Naschmarkt, where cognoscenti can find true treasures at the flea market. The galleries show work by foreign and Austrian artists including Richard Artschwager (Kargl), Marcus Geiger, Cosima von Bonin, Marko Lulic and Barbara Mungenast (Senn).

Contemporary art in the inner-city

Vienna´s first district is also home to numerous contemporary art galleries. Steinek has Gudrun Kampl and Matthias Herrmann under contract. Ulysses represents stars such as sculptor Bruno Gironcoli and sells splatter paintings by Hermann Nitsch and overpaintings by Arnulf Rainer.

Austrian artists - from Herbert Brandl to Bruno Gironcoli and Arnulf Rainer to Franz West - are also shown by the Elisabeth & Klaus Thoman Gallery. West and Rainer (as well as Joseph Beuys, Günter Brus and many more) can also be marveled at in the Konzett Gallery. The Galerie Suppan Fine Arts offers Arnulf Rainer, Franz West and many more.

Highlight pieces from different centuries

Lovers of Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) handicrafts dating back to about 1900 will be at the right address at Bel Etage in the city centre. Josef Hoffmann’s silver service, Michael Powolny’s ceramic cherubs, Lötz iridescent vases and complete interiors for living rooms and studies by Wiener Werkstätte designers all await their new owners there. Austrian masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries (including Klimt and Schiele) can be found in the Galerie Martin Suppan.

Furniture, antique clocks, paintings and crafts from the 18th and early 19th century can be found at the art dealer Stephan Andréewitch on Stallburggasse. The paintings offered by the gallery are primarily miniatures from the Biedermeier period, classical landscape paintings, and works by the old masters. Porcelain vases, candlesticks and "Zwischengoldglas" - glasses with gold leaf between two glass layers - from the Baroque to the Biedermeier periods round off the collection.
