He already took part in the first art KARLSRUHE in 2004. “Of course”, says the well-known Düsseldorf-based art dealer Klaus Schwarzer, for whom participation in art fairs is obligatory. For more than three decades, Schwarzer has mediated 20th-century art to private and public collections. Needless to say, he cultivates the best contacts in the auction business. It is important for him to be able to provide his clients with optimal service, also when they are looking for something unconventional. Schwarzer is a flexible gallerist who regularly fulfils exclusive requests.
Schwarzer’s list of artists is full of stylistic contrasts, but the works of widely dissimilar artists are united by the fact that each artwork which he offers for sale is always of the finest quality. Willi Baumeister and Max Beckmann, Otto Dix and Joan Miro, Ernst Wilhelm Nay and Pablo Picasso, Hans Arp and Joseph Beuys: Schwarzer’s portfolio seems to encompass the entirety of art history. Of course, Klaus Schwarzer also keeps a sharp on eye on living artists. Works by artists such as Stefan Balkenhol, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, Konrad Klapheck, Gerhard Richter or Günther Uecker frequently appear on his gallery’s walls. Here’s the art trade on its highest level.
