Michael Werner Gallery

Established: 1963

In 1963, Michael Werner opened his first gallery, Werner & Katz, in Berlin, Germany with the first solo exhibition of Georg Baselitz. Galerie Michael Werner was later established in Cologne in 1969. Since then, the gallery has worked with several of the most important artists of the twentieth century, including Marcel Broodthaers, James Lee Byars, Peter Doig and Sigmar Polke.

Michael Werner Gallery opened its doors in New York in 1990 with eventual partner Gordon VeneKlasen. The gallery currently occupies the historic East 77 Street townhouse where legendary dealer Leo Castelli once kept his gallery.

In 2012, Michael Werner Gallery inaugurated a new location in London’s Mayfair with an exhibition of new paintings by Peter Doig.
