As a confidant of Klimt and Schiele and later Secession member, the painter Hans Böhler was closely involved the Austrian avant-garde art of the first half of the 20th century. In his lifetime his oeuvre was presented in several exhibitions. Numerous retrospectives after his death additionally testified to Böhler’s art historical weight – nowadays his works are highly popular amongst experienced collectors, but where he was presented as a new find for collectors by the Marlborough gallery in the mid Sixties, his name is now established and his circle of admirers is growing rapidly. His “nudes” are spectacular and so are his costume pieces which are a combination of the Austrian avant garde and impressionism. A painter to be followed by the serious collector.
