Lot Essay

The gallery opened by Konrad Fischer in 1967 was nothing more than a passageway located on the Neubrückstrasse, Dusseldorf, which he enclosed with two glass walls on either end to create a room of about 3×11×3.90 meters. The first exhibition in the gallery was with Carl Andre, whom Fischer had never met and whose work he knew only from reproductions in international art magazines.
Fischer met Jan Dibbets six weeks when he and Dibbets participated in an exhibition at Galerie Dorothea Loehr in Frankfurt. Since Jan Dibbets’ first exhibition in 1968 at the gallery he is presented by Konrad Fischer Gallery. Dibbets said, 'I did exhibitions in Dusseldorf on account of Konrad. He was the most important art dealer of all in the last 25 years of the 20th century. Everything that was special was with Konrad.'
