We focus on German art of the 19th and 20th century, in particular German expressionism. By tradition, however, we also work in the field of Old Master Paintings, again preferably of German origin. We are glad to have you on our website!
Every painting we offer for sale has been thoroughly researched by us and is accompanied by a scientific documentation. This is not only standard for us, but also our pleasure. Dr. Helmut Philipp Riedl has received a Ph.D. in art history and has spent years in research institutes such as the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome or the Central Institute for Art History in Munich. Several books and scientific articles on Old Master painters from the 14th to the 18th century have been published by him in the past. He also spent several years in the Old Master Pictures and Drawings Departments at Christie’s London. Therefore, we have been able to establish contacts with specialised scholars and colleagues around the world. Their competence also leaves its mark in our research.
For many years you were able to see us participating at leading art fairs in Germany, Austria, Belgium and France. We would be extremely pleased, to also welcome you at our premises in the heart of Munich, at Platzl 2. We moved here in 2016, after almost twenty years in Prannerstrasse. Now, we are even closer to Maximilianstrasse with its elegant jewellers and fashion shops. And: our gallery is situated at one of the most well known squares in Munich: at the “Platzl”, where you also can find the famous “Hofbräuhaus” and the gourmet restaurant “Südtiroler Stuben”, run by its famous chef Alfred Schuhbeck.
We shall be glad, to send you invitations for evening receptions and vernissages, which take place from time to time in the gallery. Usually they are focussed on an artist or one particular subject. Recently, we were able, to present watercolours and drawings by the leading German expressionis painter Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
Many art lovers and collectors have gained confidence in us over the years and we feel honoured and priviledged by their trust. Also, museums and institutions have acquired works of art from us, such as recently the Museum Schnütgen in Cologne.
We are looking forward, to hear from you!
Dr. Helmut Ph. Riedl M.A.
