For more than 40 years, the Viennese Wolfgang Bauer has been offering an exceptionally wide-ranging selection of first-class Viennese Jugendstil furniture and art objects in his gallery, “bel etage”, located in the centre of Vienna, within sight of the opera. With its second premise, the bel etage gallery, offers its exceptional works of arts now also in Vienna`s "fine art and antiques district", at Dorotheergasse I2.
Interiors and objets d’art by the most famous architects and designers of the turn of the 19th to the 20th centuries, such as Adolf Loos and Otto Wagner (along with their students), as well as Josef Hoffmann and Kolo Moser — the best known artists of the WIENER WERKSTÄTTE — are presented on two floors. The range is rounded off with paintings and sculptures by top-class painters and sculptors of the early twentieth century.
With great enterprise and a fine nose, the gallery owner succeeds time and again in tracking down and documenting works by the best-known artists of this important period, which has been gaining increasing international recognition over the past few years.
Wolfgang Bauer’s priority is to deal only in first-class and authentic objects. Numerous international collectors and art lovers trust his taste and his extensive experience.
