ART VIENNA: 27-29 March 2020


In view of the latest developments around Coronavirus COVID-19, the Austrian Federal Government (note: status: 10 March 2020) has presented a package of measures that also includes the ban on events. All indoor events with more than 100 participants are prohibited until the beginning of April, which is why the ART VIENNA cannot be held from 27 to 29 March.

The health and safety of visitors is our top priority.

Fortunately, however, it has already been possible to organise a replacement date from 11 to 13 September 2020 in Vienna’s Hofburg. This is of course subject to further measures by the Federal Government or the competent authorities.

That is why we are pleased to present
our catalogue
online on the occasion of the trade fair.

Zoran Music Ausstellung Einladung

From 21 May, paintings and paper works by Zoran Music (1909 – 2005) will be presented in a show curated by Siegbert Metelko. The sales exhibition with a museum’s claim shows works from the 1940s to his late work at the two Viennese locations of Galerie W&K – Wienerroither & Kohlbacher. In the baroque rooms of the Palais Schönborn-Batthyny, paintings by the exceptional artist are staged, the paper works in the W&K gallery. A total of more than 90 works were collected through the cooperation with Galerie Magnet and the information platform Zoran Music-COMARTE. The exhibition is open to the public and free of charge until 13 September 2019.

In addition to landscape representations of Dalmatia, Tuscany and Umbria, portraits and genre scenes of farmers and fishermen, as well as cityscapes from Paris and Venice, are on display. Also on display are paintings from his Cavallini series, in which the depictions of horses became a symbol of freedom and humanity, as well as works from his series We Are Not the Last.

Galerie Magnet and Sheperd W & K Galleries are delighted to present paintings and paper works by the Slovenian artist Zoran Music (1909 – 2005).

30 works of the artist are shown, 14 of which are from our gallery collections.

The painter comes from Gorizia then a part of Austria-Hungary, today Slovenia.

Arrested by the Gestapo in Venice, he was taken to Dachau concentration camp from November 44 to May 45 as a prisoner and was freed by the Americans on 29 April 1945 with other survivors.

During this time, he drew authentically on site, of which about 40 works were preserved.

This fact gives it a very special place, even beyond Europe, especially in the United States.

In recent years, we have become more and more involved in his work and have also been able to help with the preparation of a large exhibition (12 April to 6 August 2018) at the Leopoldmuseum.

This smaller exhibition in NY is a consequence of this. Works by Zoran Music can also be found in American collections and museums.

Gallery Magnet and Shepherd W & K Galleries are pleased to present paintings and works on paper by the Slovenian artist Zoran Music (1909 – 2005).

30 Paintings of the Artist are shown, fourteen of these paintings belong to our Gallery.

The Artist comes from Görz. Back then part of Austria-Hungary, today known as Slovenia.

Arrested by the Gestapo in Venice, he got imprisoned from November 1944 till May 1945 in the Concentration Camp Dachau and freed, together with other survivors, on April 29, 1945 by the American Army.

During this time in prison, he captured his surroundings on paper. 40 of these drawings have been preserved until today. These life circumstances, give him beyond Europe, but especially in the United States of America a special place of value.

The last years we have engaged ourselves with his work and were also involved in the organization of an exhibition in the “Leopold museum” in Vienna, which took place from April 12 till August 6, 2018.

This much smaller exhibition in New York is a continuation of these efforts. Works of Zoran Mu’i’ can also be found in American Collections and Museums.

Zoran Music (1909-2005) was already one of the established Slovenian painters when he was abducted to the Dachau concentration camp for several months at the end of 1944. Drawings that were made there became harrowing documents of the times.
