Founded in 1964, Galerie Thomas has become one of the leading and most reputable galleries for works by masters of German Expressionism, Classic Modernism, Post-War Art and Contemporary Art. Galerie Thomas’ history includes many significant milestones such as its first exhibition featuring one hundred works by Alexej von Jawlensky or acquiring parts of the legendary Rheingarten collection.

After fifty successful years in its Maximilianstrasse location, Galerie Thomas relocated all activities to a lofty gallery space with more than 500 square metres at the centre of Munich’s museum district. Masterworks of Pop Art, US Postwar and Abstract American, German Postwar Art as well as national and international contemporary positions are now displayed alongside the gallery’s original programme.

Galerie Thomas works with an extensive network of international private and corporate clients, institutions as well as other art market constituencies, known for its expertise and scholarship with a special focus on German Expressionism, Classic Modernism and Post-War Art.

Within German Expressionism, Galerie Thomas has staged exhibitions featuring artists of the Blaue Reiter, such as Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky and Gabriele Münter; the Brücke group, including Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Otto Mueller and Emil Nolde; and, as representatives of the Bauhaus, Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee and Oskar Schlemmer. Classic Modern Art has been represented by solo shows of Edvard Munch, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder and Fernand Léger. Artists such as Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz, Ernst Wilhelm Nay or Eduardo Chillida and American artists such as Chuck Close, Peter Halley or Joan Mitchell as well as artists from the ZERO group and Pop Artists punctuate the activities of the gallery in the field of Post-War Art.

Galerie Thomas participates in the international art fair circuit presenting works at fairs including Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, The Armory Show New York, TEFAF Maastricht, TEFAF New York, Frieze, Art Cologne and Art Basel Hong Kong. Today Raimund Thomas, together with Silke Thomas, Joerg Paal and Nadine Kriesemer, make up the directorial team of the gallery.
