On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Mining and Gothic Museum Leogang, the Kitzbühel private collection Vogl-Reitter, with a total of 50 panel paintings, sculptures, reliefs and furniture from the Gothic period, will be presented. The collection is supplemented with objects on loan from the Belvedere Vienna, the Esztergom Christian Museum and the Salzburg Museum. With the preservation, retrieval and consolidation of Salzburg’s cultural assets, the special areas of expertise acquired over the past decades are made visible in an exhibition.

The pharmacist’s wife Maria Vogl (1864-1950) from Kitzbühel had a great passion for Gothic art and collected in the immediate vicinity of her hometown Kitzbühel. Among them are sensational objects such as the central part of the Stäber altar of the Margarethenkapelle at St. Peter’s cemetery and a panel painting from the pilgrimage church of Maria Alm am Steinernen Meer.

6th auction
Art & Antiques

Not many international auction houses are able to sell a painting by the world’s most famous baroque painter. Tiberius Auctions has succeeded in acquiring a work by Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen 1577 – 1640 Antwerp), thought to be lost, for auction on July 5/6, 2022. Originally owned by the Russian tsar’s family, the work entered the collection of Seehof Palace near Bamberg in Bavaria through marriage. The motif of the boy Jesus with the young John and the sheep is perhaps the most famous motif of the painter. The artistic quality and the exceptionally good state of preservation underline the importance of the painting as an important rediscovery on the global art market.

In addition to Rubens, there are other works of art worth mentioning in the auction on July 5/6, such as the two woodcuts by Albrecht Dürer, the contemporary portrait of the Baroque composer George Frideric Handel, circa 1740, or the portrait of the Bavarian Elector Max Emanual in a suit of armor, which was created shortly before 1700. Paintings by the 19th century Austrian artists Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (1793-1865) and Friedrich Gauermann (1807-1862), the Viennese Art Nouveau painters Otto Friedrich or Ernst Stöhr can be purchased at auction, as well as a watercolor by George Braque (1882-1963) or a wash pen and ink drawing by Fernand Leger (1881-1955). In total, more than 200 paintings will be offered for sale.

Also in the field of antiques, furniture, art nouveau and jewelry we offer a variety of exceptional objects. Sculptures from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century entice the prospective buyer, as do a chandelier from the workshop of Josef Danhauser, works by the Wiener Werkstätte or Michael Powolny, silver utilitarian and ornamental objects and fine wristwatches from Patek Phillipe or Rolex.
