Galerie Karsten Greve
Karsten Greve, born in 1946, studied in Cologne, Lausanne and Geneva. He started his career as an art dealer and publisher in 1969. He opened the first of his own galleries at the beginning of 1973, his debut being a solo exhibition featuring Yves Klein in the gallery building at Lindenstraße, Cologne.
His intimate face-to-face contact with foremost artists, such as Cy Twombly, Louise Bourgeois, Jannis Kounellis, John Chamberlain and others, provided the base for the quality of his program, which is defined by international avant-garde after 1945. Apart from Twombly, Kounellis, Chamberlain and Bourgeois, artists like Joseph Cornell, Jean Dubuffet, Willem de Kooning, Pablo Picasso, Louis Soutter, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Wols decisively shaped the profile of the gallery.
