This largest ever exhibition with museum ambition presents around 180 works by the international artist from 21 Italian, French, German, Slovenian and Austrian private collections, from the 1940s to his late work.
More than 600 guests were present at the opening on January 23, 2020 in the Klagenfurt City Gallery.
Galerie Magnet from Völkermarkt specialises in the artists of Classical Modernism in Carinthia. In addition to the big names such as Herbert Boeckl and Werner Berg, these are primarily the artists from the Nötscher Kreis (Anton Kolig, Franz Wiegele and Sebastian Isepp, along with their students Anton Mahringer and Gerhart Frankl) and important individualists such as Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel, Arnold Clementschitsch or Jean Egger.
In recent years, the Carinthian classics of the second half of the 20th century have also been added: Hans Bischoffshausen, Kiki Kogelnik, Hans Staudacher, Giselbert Hoke, Bruno Gironcoli and others.
In addition to the exhibitions in the three rooms in Völkermarkt, Klagenfurt and Vienna, the art fairs “ArtVienna”at the Leopoldmuseum in Vienna, “ART&ANTIQUE” in vienna’s Hofburg, “Kunstsalon Perchtoldsdorf” in Perchtoldsdorf near Vienna and “ArtAustria” at the Palais Liechtenstein, Vienna, are regularly participated.
The well-known Carinthian gallery owner Prof. h. c. Wilfried Magnet has been devoting himself for decades to the trade in works by Carinthian artists. He also likes to collect and trade works of art by artists who have spent some time in Carinthia. For Magnet, these are also “almost Carinthians” and therefore you can also find works by well-known painters like Zoran Music in his galerie Magnet.
As you can see from the artist directory here on the website, we deal with exhibits of the most famous Carinthian artists.
If we don’t have a work in stock from an artist, gallery owner Wilfried Magnet is happy to try to get appropriate works. Just ask!
In recent decades, Galerist Magnet has built up a large national and international network of collectors and suppliers.
Magnet likes to emphasize that the works of Carinthian artists are also in international demand. We receive worldwide enquiries and are always pleased about this great interest in our artists.
If you are interested, we look forward to hearing from you!
