Founded in 1968 by Irene and Wolfgang Zacke, we are a family business of three generations working together with a passion for the fascinating world of Asian art. Some of the many catalogs we have published are highly sought-after today, offering unique insights into rare items such as Japanese samurai swords, archaic Chinese jades and the earliest known colored woodblock prints.
Vienna has always been a hub for art collectors and a vibrant marketplace for art of all kinds. Galerie Zacke has been at the epicenter of the Asian art market in Central Europe since the beginning. We were among the first in the region to exhibit netsuke and organized several symposia on the subject, which attracted worldwide attention between 1984 and 1993. Over the years, we have forged close relationships with our clients and built a strong reputation among important collectors, industry professionals, and artists.
Galerie Zacke held its first Asian art auctions in 1995. Since then, our audience has grown exponentially, especially with the advent of online auctions. Working with various online platforms and drawing on a broad list of trusted clients worldwide, we can consistently fetch exceptionally high prices for items we offer at auction. Our specialties include Buddhist art, Netsuke, Samurai swords, Japanese and Chinese works of art, and Southeast Asian gold and gemstones.

Our gallery and auction showroom is located in the heart of Vienna's First District. We moved to a new location in the spring of 2022. The design honors our Austrian heritage and passion for Asian cultures, bringing together European, Chinese and Japanese architectural elements throughout the space.
