Rainer Beuse and Paul Schönewald launched their gallery in 1992. From Krefeld and later from Xanten Paul Schönewald developed a very personal program of selected positions such as Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke and American Minimal Art. Paul Schönewald also continues to discover new talents, creating new surprises in the exhibition space. In 2006 SCHÖNEWALD moved into a former hydraulic factory in Düsseldorf, which was converted into a gallery space by Selldorf Architects, New York. Since then exhibitions with artists of a younger generation – such as Heinz Ackermans, Otto Boll, Karin Kneffel, Wilhelm Mundt, Andreas Schmitten and René Withs – exemplify a broad scope. For many years Paul Schönewald has supervised and developed major collections domestically and abroad. With the gallery he regularly takes part in Art Cologne, Cologne.
