From Generation to Generation – Gallery Rother Winter


As the daughter of the art collector Adolf Herkenrath and as the niece of the painter Peter Herkenrath, Christine Rother-Ulrich grew up with art from an early age. Opening her own gallery in 1994 was practically a predestined event. Six years ago, the trained banker joined forces with Elvira Mann-Winter and her gallery. Since then, the two women have shared premises and programmes in Wiesbaden. Christine Rother-Ulrich explains: “Our goal is to convey to our customers and collectors the joy and enthusiasm that we personally feel for art and for the uniqueness of individual artworks.” Gallery Rother Winter represents established and younger artists who make creative and sustainable artworks.

The younger generation came onboard this year: Elvira Mann-Winter transferred the rights to her gallery to Christine Rother-Ulrich’ son Christian H. Rother, who plans to continue running the gallery together with his mother under the name Rother Winter, while simultaneously assuring its continued existence for the future. The gallery has been uninterruptedly present at art KARSLRUHE since 2005. For the upcoming edition of the fair in 2020, Gallery Rother Winter will also preset two One-Artist-Shows at its 100-square-metre stand. One of these shows will feature paintings by Eva Ohlow.

“A special highlight will be the presentation of the young shooting star of the art world Tim Bengel,” Rother-Ulrich reveals. Bengel (born in 1991) uses an innovative and unique technique to create artworks from sand, gold and other precious metals. Spectacular premieres of his works in social media earned global fame for this young star.
