Her­bert Bre­it­er, born in Land­shut (Sile­sia) in 1927, came to Salzburg in 1945. As the orga­niz­er of the Graph­ic Work­shop in the Trakl­haus in Salzburg, he left his mark on the visu­al arts in Salzburg and pro­mot­ed two gen­er­a­tions of sub­se­quent painters, drafts­men and graph­ic artists. In 2012, a com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque — Her­bert Bre­it­er Ter­race — was unveiled above the Toscani­ni Court­yard in Salzburg, on the spot where Bre­it­er cap­tured count­less impres­sions of Salzburg.
On the upper floor of the gallery draw­ings of the artist are presented.

The artist, born in Bangkok in 1952, has been work­ing con­tin­u­ous­ly on work blocks in small for­mat for years. On the one hand, he com­pos­es col­ored sur­faces with pig­ments on the paper primed with beeswax. The sec­ond group of works com­pris­es reduced black and white pic­ture compositions.

Suvat grad­u­at­ed from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Arts in Vien­na. Since 1983 the artist has par­tic­i­pat­ed in numer­ous exhi­bi­tions and exhi­bi­tion par­tic­i­pa­tions in Aus­tria, Ger­many and Italy. Suvat lives and works in Vienna.
