About Widder Auctons

Widder Auctions is a new hotspot for art lovers and collectors of early 20th century Austrian, German and International Art. Roland Widder and his team manage the auction house, which will be happy to advise you on building up or selling your collection and the best possible use of individual works of art. One or two major live auctions are held each year in Vienna besides smaller timed internet only auctions. Through the cooperation of the art trade and the auction house, we can respond individually to your needs and decide together whether objects are better placed in the context of an auction or in the art trade. In addition to the auctions and gallery activities, the issuing of publications and the processing of collections and artists' estates are of great importance. More than 40 books have now been published, including a number of scholarly artist monographs. We would be happy to advise you on the purchase of a work of art and the sale of estates, collections and individual pieces. We are looking forward to your contact!
