Wienerroither & Kohlbacher

The company was founded by Ebi Kohlbacher and Lui Wienerroither in 1993. A few years later in 1997, W&K moved to Vienna´s city centre. The high arches of Palais Hardegg on Strauchgasse offered the perfect atmosphere for presenting classical modernism. Modernism focusing on Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka and Alfred Kubin, as well as art from the Interwar Period were the centre of interest right from the beginning. By participating in international art fairs and presenting furthermore representatives of classical modernism such as Erich Heckel, Lyonel Feininger and Pablo Picasso, W&K has established itself as a key at the artmarket over the past 25 years.

With the W&K Edition, the gallery is dedicated to the publication of scientific exhibition catalogues and monographs. In 2013, W&K associated with the well-known Shepherd Gallery in New York and since then, has been implementing joint exhibition projects. In obtaining a further location, this time in Vienna, the gallery was expanded three years later. With the baroque premises of Palais Schönborn-Batthyány, steeped in tradition, a unique exhibition room was added, where W&K has displayed contemporary items and art from after 1945 ever since.
