Our continued optimism for this new venture is rooted not only in our recent successes but also on the belief that Vienna is the ideal location for a new art auction house. Our new auction house is located in the beautiful Palais Breuner, in the heart of city at Singerstrasse 16, 1010 Vienna. You are welcome to place your bids in person; by phone; with written bids; or live on the internet through www.liveauctioneers.com, www.lot-tissimo.com, and www.invaluable.com". Udo Langauer
Situated in the heart of Old Geneva, the Musée Barbier-Mueller is dedicated to the preservation, study, and publication of the remarkable art collection begun by Josef Mueller in 1907 and carried on to this day by his heirs. Born in 1887 in Solothurn, Switzerland, Josef Mueller took an early interest in the acquisition of art, and as early as 1918 had amassed a group of important modern paintings that included many works by such masters as Picasso, Cézanne, Braque, Renoir, Matisse, and others. Mueller began collecting tribal art in the 1920s, and though his collection continually grew, it was extremely rarely exhibited in his lifetime. Mueller's son-in-law, Jean Paul Barbier, was an art collector in his own right, and when the two collections were eventually combined, the Barbier collection brought a previously unsought coherency to the collection of Josef Mueller, and in the process created one of the greatest, if not the greatest, collection of tribal art in the world. The Musée Barbier-Mueller was opened in 1977, shortly after Josef Mueller's death. The museum's collection, which is constantly enriched by Jean Paul Barbier, today comprises 7,000 works of art, including sculptures, masks, textiles, and objects of prestige and corporal adornment. The principal areas of collection are, in order of importance, Africa, the East Indies ("primitive" Indonesia), Oceania, the Americas (pre- and post-Columbian), tribal Asia, and, in a more general manner, the prehistoric or archaic phases of certain great civilizations, including Greece, Italy, Japan, and the East Indies.
The Galerie Bernard Dulon dedicates its activities on the representation of the art of ancient tribal high societies. Since 2002 the gallery regularly organises in her premises rue Jacques Callot in Paris high quality exhibitions buttressed by reference catalogues.
A member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts since 1985, Bernard Dulon made himself known as commissioner for famous exhibitions such as Lumière Noire (1997), Château de Tanlay, Objetos-Signos de Africa with the Iber Caja foundation in Saragosse (2000), Carnets de Voyage in cooperation with the MRAC of Tervuren for Musée du Président Jacques Chirac (2010).
The Gallery also organizes exhibitions in New York with Friedman Vallois Gallery, and participates in the Biennale des Antiquaires since 2004.
