THE ART

As in his studies, Willy Wiedmann did not commit to a single art direction.

 

Music and painting were an equally important part of his artistic work.

He even brought the music into his pictures.

 

Wiedmann created a total of 150 opus works . He also worked as a freelance musician and composer at the Württemberg State Theater in Stuttgart (1954–1964) and for radio stations such as B. SDR , SWF and ZDF (1964-1982).

Willy Wiedmann saved the old farmhouse from the 16th century from falling apart over many years. In 1964 he opened the gallery, at that time still under the name "Galerie am Jakobsbrunnen"

THE GALLERIST

In 1964, Wiedmann opened his first gallery; the "Galerie am Jakobsbrunnen" in Stuttgart. He also worked as a gallery owner with great artists. He was one of the first to exhibit works by Salvador Dalí in Stuttgart. He was also one of the first gallery owners in other art movements: Among other things, exhibitions of the Vienna School and Neoclassicism followed. In total, Wiedmann opened five more galleries during his lifetime, some of which he also directed, including in New York.
