As is customary, the he Galerie St. Etienne’s summer exhibition features RECENT ACQUISITIONS and also recaps the past season’s projects.

The Galerie St. Etienne presented the complete print cycles of Käthe Kollwitz in the autumn of 2013, and then opened the New Year by commemorating the hundredth anniversary of World War I. The summer’s installation contains war-related works by Kollwitz, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, and others. Also on display is a concise version of the gallery’s spring exhibition, which paired the work of Ilija Basisevic, a Serbian peasant who had four years of elementary schooling, with that of his son Dmitrije (known as Mangelos), an art historian lately recognized as one of the forerunners of international conceptualism. Other noteworthy self-taught artists in the summer installation include James Castle, Madge Gill, Frank Jones, Augustin Lesage, Grandma Moses, Michel Nedjar and Adolf Wölfli.

Galerie St. Etienne’s most spectacular new acquisition is a group of three major paintings by Paula Modersohn-Becker, from the largest such collection in America. The gallery has also obtained a life-sized oil portrait of the noted opera singer Elisabeth Stüntzner by Otto Dix, and Egon Schiele’s beautiful watercolor of Elisabeth Lederer, daughter of the prominent Klmt patrons August and Serena Lederer. Another highlight of the show is a pair of sudies for Klimt’s final, uncompleted painting The Bride. The exhibition is rounded out by a selection of rare (in some cases unique) woodcuts, lithographs and etchings by the pioneering Brücke artists Erich Heckel, E.L. Kirchner, Max Pechstein and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.

RECENT ACQUISITIONS is documented by a comprehensive checklist, which is available free of charge by mail, or can be downloaded from our website: www.gseart.com. The accompanying essay contains the Galerie St. Etienne’s annual “state of the market” report, which this year focuses on “The Investment Game.”
