The Galerie St. Etienne, founded in 1939 by Otto Kallir (1894-1978), specializes in Austrian and German Expressionism, as well as American and European self-taught artists. It has represented Anna Mary Robertson (“Grandma”) Moses since her first exhibition in 1940.
In 2021, we closed our exhibition space and became an art advisory. The gallery’s library, archives and scholarly activities were taken over by the Kallir Research Institute, a non-profit foundation established in 2017.
The Galerie St. Etienne still actively represents the contemporary artist Sue Coe.
The gallery also still owns a small inventory of works by Austrian and German artists such as Max Beckmann, Lovis Corinth, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, E.L. Kirchner, Gustav Klimt, Alfred Kubin, Oskar Kokoschka, Käthe Kollwitz, Emil Nolde, Egon Schiele and others. Available self-taught artists include Ilija Bosilj-Basicevic, Henry Darger, Morris Hirshfield, John Kane, Grandma Moses and Josef Karl Rädler. Additionally, we stock a limited number of works by Leonard Baskin. Selections from our inventory are featured in rotating online sales. Inquiries are encouraged.
