History of the Company

Paul Schönewald launched his gallery in 1992. From Krefeld and later from Xanten he developed a very personal program specialized in selected positions of German and American Post-War and Contemporary Art. This includes Josef Albers, Carl Andre, Georg Baselitz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, John Chamberlain, Donald Judd, Yayoi Kusama, Agnes Martin, Blinky Palermo, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Schütte and Cy Twombly. Today their works consist of the top artists of the market. Paul Schönewald also continues to discover new talents which create new surprises in the exhibition space. In 2006 SCHÖNEWALD moved into a former hydraulic factory in Düsseldorf, which was converted into a gallery space by Selldorf Architects, New York. Since then exhibitions with artists of a younger generation – such as Karin Kneffel, Wilhelm Mundt and Andreas Schmitten - exemplify a broad scope. For many years Paul Schönewald has supervised and developed major collections domestically and abroad. With his gallery he regularly takes part in Art Cologne, Cologne and Frieze Masters, London.
