TEFAF Maastricht 2020
Every year the TEFAF Maastricht offers a showcase for the most important international galleries and art dealer spanning 7,000 years of art history. It is the most exclusive venue for curators and experts, renowned private collectors and dealers. Every year exceptional highlights of the art market are presented at the fair. These have been examined under rigorous criteria by a jury of experts for quality, authenticity, provenance and condition. The interest in classical modernism has been ongoing on the market for years, and W&K - Wienerroither & Kohlbacher will be showing outstanding works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka at TEFAF Maastricht 2020. These are related to international positions such as Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and contextualized with subsequent generations of Austrian artists.

It’s a matter of body
The international significance of 20th century Austrian art is a major concern of the gallery work of W&K - Wienerroither & Kohlbacher, as this movement has taken on a leading role internationally. At this year's fair, high-quality works of this psychoanalytically body-centered art will be presented at our stand. The pioneering achievements of the artists of Vienna around 1900, in particularly of Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, had a strong influence on Viennese Actionism and they effect Austrian art until today. The intensive examination of the human body and the various dimensions of physical and psychological experience remains unrivalled in other countries. Unimpressed by the repressive conventions of imperial Vienna, the artists of the Fin de Siècle explored the essential elements of life such as birth and death and the broad spectrum of sexual desire. An artistic approach picked up in the post-war period, for example in the works of Günter Brus and Otto Muehl. The show is complemented by body-specific works by Franz West and contemporary statements by Elke Silvia Krystufek.
