The Austrian art dealer Thaddaeus Ropac founded his first gallery in 1983 in Salzburg, showing artists including Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
Today, there are five branches of Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac located in three cities: Salzburg, Paris and London. The gallery represents around 60 artists and estates.
Ropac also runs a publishing house, producing catalogues and books to accompany exhibitions with contributions by prominent international art historians, curators and writers.
Born in 1960 in Austria, Ropac lives between Paris, London, Salzburg and New York.
