Kallir Research Institute


The Kallir Research Institute (KRI) is a nonprofit foundation, established in 2017 by Jane Kallir and Hildegard Bachert, dedicated to expanding upon the scholarship of art historian and art dealer Otto Kallir (1894-1978). Its areas of focus are the Austrian and German Expressionists and self-taught American and European artists. Foremost among these are Egon Schiele, Richard Gerstl, Käthe Kollwitz and Grandma Moses. The KRI also specializes in the work of artists who were introduced to the U.S. by Kallir—including Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin and Paula Modersohn-Becker.

The Kallir Research Institute organizes events, coordinates educational and curatorial initiatives, and oversees the catalogues raisonnés of Egon Schiele and Grandma Moses. It also owns and administers the former archives and library of the Galerie St. Etienne.
