Run by women for three generations, the Galerie Gmurzynska not only takes part in the most important art fairs, but has also published numerous significant art historical catalogues. Added to this is a touch of glamour – for its clientele includes celebrities such as Hedi Slimane, Sylvester Stallone, Karl Lagerfeld and Marc Rich. In addition, Gmurzynska has represented the estate of Yves Klein and also includes works by Juan Miró and Fernand Léger in its program.
Incidentally, the gallery’s location on Paradeplatz is particularly interesting: it is housed in the same block in which the Dada movement presented its first exhibition at the Galerie Dada in 1917. While the gallery no longer exists, the Confiserie Sprüngli is still just around the corner in the same block of buildings.
The Galerie Gmurzynska has a second branch in Zurich at Talstrasse 37.
