The Galerie bei der Oper is an art gallery located in the city centre, next to the famous Vienna State Opera.
Our program focuses on original Japanese woodblock prints from 18th to 20th century, including classical ukiyo-e from Edo- and Meiji-Period, shin-hanga and sosaku-hanga, as well as on woodblock prints and paintings from modernist European artists. In addition, we offer a constantly expanding collection of Asian objects such as Netsuke, Lacquer, Japanese and Chinese Ceramics.
We are also passionate about Japonistic and Chinoises artworks from the turn of the 20th century. When Japan opened to the West in 1854, a wave of enthusiasm for Japanese art and culture spilled over Europe. In this period no artist could escape the influence of Japanese arts and handicrafts. Take a close look – Japonism is found in Impressionsm, Art Noveau, Jugendstil and many other artworks of Classical Modernism.
On our website and online-shop, you will find not only a large variety of original Japanese woodblock prints, but also an exclusive selection of European prints, as well as a special section for Netsuke.
We are also buying your original Japanese woodblock print. If you are interested, please see “sell”.
The Gallery is Member of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and the Hauptverband des Österreichischen Buchhandels since 2018. We have also cooperated with and/or sold to: Belvedere Wien, Museum der Stadt Wien, Albertina Wien, Jüdisches Museum Wien, MAK Museum für angewandte Kunst Wien, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Weltmuseum Wien and many international art fairs within Europe.
