Gallery Szaal

About us

As one of the most traditional galleries in the country, we are a forum for the encounter with contemporary art and for purchases of artworks that express diverse views and positions. Our focus is predominantly on Austrian painting and sculpture. We concentrate on works by distinguished artists, some of whom are already among the international world’s best.

We look back on a history of more than 100 years: since the founding of the family business in 1921 by Josef Szaal, the grandfather of today’s managing directors Horst and Wolfgang Szaal, art is our passion! In the process, we have set individual priorities in each generation and thus actively participated in shaping Vienna’s cultural landscape.

We share our enthusiasm for art with many people. In the course of decades, manifold contacts, connections and friendships have grown, with artists as well as with a wide-ranging circle of people with an affinity for art. Through solo and group exhibitions in the premises of our gallery on Vienna’s Schottenring and in the context of important art fairs, we promote interaction between artworks and viewers, thus contributing to the dissemination and recognition of contemporary art.

Aware that an existence without art is possible but joyless, we are convinced of the enrichment that a lively discourse about and a life with works of art represents. For our customers, which include renowned museums and private collections, we are committed and serious partners as gallery owners.

Maybe you would like to immerse yourself in the multifaceted cosmos of contemporary art, to be informed and inspired, or to acquire a painting, drawing or sculpture. You may also be planning to build a collection and need expert advice. Or you would like to sell a work of art. We are happy to be there for you!
