The Klewan Collection. Portrait(s) of Modernism

By presenting masterpieces from the Klewan Collection at the Lower Belvedere’s Orangery, we are going to showcase a comprehensive exhibition of more than 190 works that have been compiled by the former Vienna-based gallery owner Helmut Klewan.

The art dealer, collector, and philanthropist, now 73-year-old, owns important sculptures by Alberto Giacometti, as well as one of the largest collections of works on paper by this artist, who was once recommended to him by Arnulf Rainer. In Vienna of the 1970s, Klewan, however, did not only maintain contacts with Rainer, but also with Hundertwasser and the Viennese Actionists. Between 1978 and 1999, Klewan ran a second gallery in Munich, a city which in 1986 also became the centre of his private life. Because of his international relations to celebrated artists, he became one of the most influential agents carrying Austrian art production abroad. Klewan’s parties, which he started organizing in the early 1980s and during which he entertained his guests as a DJ with his splendid vinyl collection, were legendary.

The spectrum of Klewan’s collection ranges from international modernism to central positions of post-war art. Key works of Austrian art since 1945 constitute a special highlight, which is why in the exhibition works by Pablo Picasso, Giorgio de Chirico, and Jean Dubuffet will be juxtaposed with those by Maria Lassnig, Christian Ludwig Attersee, and Hans Staudacher.
