The Michael Werner Collection

I Sat Beauty on My Knees...And I Reviled Her

Published by Walther König, Köln
Text by Eric Darragon, Julia Garimorth, Fabrice Hergott, Pamela Kort, Ulrich Leben, Frank C. Möller, Pierre Rosenberg.

Michael Werner launched his first gallery in 1963, opening with the first exhibition of Georg Baselitz. Galleries were later established in Cologne (1969) and New York (1990). Michael Werner has worked with, and helped to launch, several of the most important artists of the twentieth century, including Marcel Broodthaers, James Lee Byars, Peter Doig, Jörg Immendorff, Per Kirkeby, Markus Lüpertz, A.R. Penck, Sigmar Polke and Don Van Vliet. This 580-page catalogue presents more than 800 artworks from the collection of Germany’s most renowned art dealer, including works from his donation to the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris. Thirty-nine artists--among them Arp, Picabia, Kirchner, Fautrier, Manzoni, Klein, Broodthaers, Beuys, Filliou and Byars--are represented in 20 chapters, where they are juxtaposed with commentary by contemporary critics. An appendix lists the works in the collection, all the shows of Michael Werner Gallery and a bibliography of its many publications.
