5 Highlights from the Heidi Horten Collection – ARTnews.com

After years of secrecy, the Austrian collector Heidi Göess-Horten has finally given her holdings a permanent home via a new museum in Vienna.

The recently opened Heidi Horten Collection is a short walk from many of Vienna’s most famous museums, including the Leopold and the Albertina. While it pales in size and scope to those two institutions, it has already drawn large crowds since its inauguration earlier this month.

Göess-Horten has over the years amassed a 700-work collection rich in works by Franz Marc, Georg Baselitz, Marc Chagall, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, among others. But the first hang at the museum, a show called “Open,” is largely devoid of these blue-chip names. It is instead mainly given over to Austrian artists, in particular young ones with conceptual inclinations. Future shows, however, will trot out these better-known works.
