Galerie von Vertes GmbH

Galerie von Vertes GmbH

Founded by Laszlo von Vertes, the eponymous gallery was conceived as an international exhibition platform specialising in 20th- and 21st-century art. With a presence at international fairs and offices in Zurich and Freienbach, the gallery builds and manages private and public collections, organises exhibitions and gives lectures on art and art market related subjects. “With Galerie von Vertes I tried to create a democratic space for the exploration and understanding of the inexhaustible diversity of art and its creators.”

Laszlo von Vertes opened his first gallery in Munich in 1981 and expanded to locations in St. Moritz and Salzburg before opening a Modern & Contemporary gallery in Zurich.  The gallery annually participates in leading art fairs such as TEFAF Maastricht, Art Cologne, PAD London, Masterpiece and Art Miami. Galerie von Vertes has also been involved as a lender in important exhibitions such as ‘The Steins Collect’ at the SFMOMA, Centre Pompidou and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It also supported ‘Matisse und die Fauves’ at the Albertina in Vienna, ‘Von Matisse zum Blauen Reiter’ at the Kunsthaus Zurich and ‘Horizont Jawlensky’ at the Museum Wiesbaden.

Over twenty-five years, Laszlo von Vertes accompanied Swiss businessman Gérard J. Corboud in putting together a high-quality and varied collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Fauvist and German Expressionist pieces. It resulted in one of the most significant collections of Impressionist art in Europe. In March 2001, Gérard Corboud and his wife gave over 170 paintings from this collection to the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne as a permanent loan. Other collections looked after by Galerie von Vertes include the Würth Collection in Germany, the Batliner Collection in Vienna (on permanent loan in the Albertina), the National Gallery in Washington and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Exceptional pieces by Braque, Calder, Chagall, Ernst, Francis, Jawlensky, Marini, Monet, Picasso, Poliakoff, Richter, Vlaminck and Warhol are featured throughout the year in our online exhibitions.
