Artcurial Austria

In the second half of 2014, Artcurial opens its third European office in Vienna, under the direction of Caroline Messensee. This Artcurial Austria "house", inaugurated in a historic building in the heart of Vienna, strengthens the existing links with local clientele and develops the notoriety of Artcurial.

Artcurial Austria, a meeting hub, creates a cultural offer in tune with the current events of the auction house:
— Signatures
— Local exhibitions
— Traveling exhibitions of the major pieces of up and coming Parisian and Monegasque sales.

Valuation days are organised by the Vienna office, covering all areas proposed by the House, ranging from Impressionist and Modern Art, Furniture and Art Objects, Design, Ancient Paintings, Books or Contemporary Art, throughout the year.

Artcurial specialists travel throughout Austria by simple appointment year round, to meet you in your home or at the Artcurial office.

Caroline Messensee

A graduate in Art History from the University of Vienna and the Sorbonne, Caroline Messensee began her career in Parisian galleries (Galerie Karsten Greve, Galerie Lelong) before becoming curator.

Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Richard Gerstl and Herbert Boeckl were, as Joan Miró, Fernand Léger, Jean Dubuffet and Georges Braque, some of the artists to whom she has devoted major exhibitions both in France (Musée Maillol) and in Austria, Germany and Spain (Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao).
