Bruno Beran (1888-1979) – A Retrospective
"…far from the tree"

Sotheby’s Vienna, Herrengasse 5, 1010 Wien

Bruno Beran, Selfportrait, 1953

Sotheby's Vienna is opening its premises on Herrengasse for an exhibition of works by Bruno Beran from 2–6 October 2023. Curated by the artist's grandson, the retrospective of works from private collections will provide an insight into the artistic and geographical journey of the Brno-born artist. This return to Vienna notably marks the first solo exhibition of Bruno Beran in Vienna since 1913.

“With this guest exhibition, we hope to make a small contribution to raising awareness of this artist, who has unfortunately been somewhat unjustly forgotten, and to make him known to a wider public. The oeuvre of Bruno Beran is undoubtedly to be understood as an important contemporary testimony of the life of a Jewish artist in the 20th century."
Andrea Jungmann, Managing Director, Sotheby's Austria

© 2023 Hannah Romano. The Artist of Abandonment

Hannah Romano’s photo series "All That Is Solid Returns To Soil" presents snapshots of the processes that deconstruct our constructions.

Nature is reclaiming the space for itself. Our perception is clouded by the veil of habit, distorted by our faith in function. Whatever our gaze falls upon, we always see something as something; mentally classify it without suspecting what is thereby lost. The fascinating aesthetics of decay brings the invisible backdrop of our actions back into focus: the abstract play of colours, the architectural structures and weathered textures.

Hannah Romano’s exhibition is an invitation to take a different look at the world: a journey of discovery without the danger of collapse.
