Galerie Barthelmess & Wischnewski

Private Gallery
Galerie Barthelmess & Wischnewski From spring 1991 to autumn 2003 our gallery was located at Berlin’s old and new centre, the Gendarmenmarkt, where we exhibited paintings and graphic art of the late 19th to the early 20th century. Besides international artist of this period we focused on German and especially Berlin artists who belonged to the German impressionist movement, namely to the Berlin Secession.

Great attention was paid to the work of those „forgotten artists“, of which quite a number were first presented after years at the Galerie am Gendarmenmarkt.

Thus it was here where the posters of Reinhard Hoffmüller were first exhibited in a one man show – some of them are now in the collection of the Kunstbibliothek Berlin as well as in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The work of Heinrich Basedow, one of the founding members of the Berlin Secession, was exhibited here first after more than sixty years. He now belongs to the collector’s „household names“ just like Kurt Haase-Jastrow, Elisabeth Andrae, Hans Hartig, Wilhelm Wagner, Mathilde Kliefert-Gießen or Elisabeth Büchsel. In addition to that the gallery repeatedly exhibited the work of internationally renowned artists who lived and worked between 1880 and 1930: Nicolas Tarkhoff, Pierre Bonnard, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Heinrich Zille and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. It was the Galerie am Gendarmenmarkt who presented the graphic work of Toulouse-Lautrec in Berlin for the first time since the 1920ies in a sale exhibition.

In autumn 2003 we transferred our business to the Giesebrechtstraße 10/corner Kurfuerstendamm, where we moved into the spacious „bel etage“ of a mansion built in 1904, providing us with perfect surroundings for the art which originated in the years between 1880 and 1930. This change meant that we also had to alter our trade name Galerie am Gendarmenmarkt to Galerie Barthelmess & Wischnewski. Our focus, however, will remain with paintings and graphic art of the late 19th to the early 20th century.
