Note to readers

This catalogue raisonné is the first complete inventory of the paintings of Oskar Kokoschka. By publishing it online, the Fondation Oskar Kokoschka is thus making the artist’s work available to all members of the research community and the public at large.

The co-author of the first volume of the catalogue raisonné published in 1995 by Galerie Welz in Salzburg, Katharina Erling has been an expert on the subject for more than 30 years. Walter Feilchenfeldt Jr., the son and successor of Kokoschka’s former representative Walter Feilchenfeldt Sen., has been associated with the artist, his widow and his work for many decades. He has therefore been able to assist the project with some invaluable information contained in the archives of Galerie Cassirer, which he runs.

The online catalogue raisonné of the paintings contains all of Oskar Kokoschka’s 490 works in the medium. It is an updated version of the catalogue dating from 1906 to 1929 edited by Johann Winkler and Katharina Erling that was published in 1995, and complements it with reference to their preparatory work for the years from 1930 to the artist’s death.

This catalogue is intended as a work in progress that can be updated and added to as necessary. The data contained in it, for which the authors are responsible, reflect the position of the Fondation Oskar Kokoschka as holder of worldwide rights to the work of Oskar Kokoschka.
