Founded by Laszlo Vertes, the eponymous gallery was conceived as an international exhibition platform specialising in 20th- and 21st-century art. Centrally located on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich the gallery builds and manages private and public collections, organises exhibitions and gives lectures on art and art market related subjects. “With Vertes I tried to create a democratic space for the exploration and understanding of the inexhaustible diversity of art and its creators.“

Laszlo Vertes opened his first gallery in Munich in 1981 and expanded to locations in St. Moritz and Salzburg before opening the spacious gallery in Zürich. The gallery annually participates in leading art fairs such as TEFAF Maastricht, Art Cologne, PAD London, Masterpiece and Art Miami. Vertes has also been involved as a lender in important exhibitions such as ‘The Steins Collect’ at the SFMOMA, Centre Pompidou and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It also supported ‘Matisse und die Fauves’ at the Albertina in Vienna, ‘Von Matisse zum Blauen Reiter’ at the Kunsthaus Zurich and ‘Horizont Jawlensky’ at the Museum Wiesbaden.

Over twenty-five years, Laszlo Vertes accompanied Swiss businessman Gérard J. Corboud in putting together a high-quality and varied collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Fauvist and German Expressionist pieces. It resulted in one of the most significant collections of Impressionist art in Europe. In March 2001, Gérard Corboud and his wife gave over 170 paintings from this collection to the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne as a permanent loan. Other Collections looked after by Vertes include the Würth Collection in Germany, the Batliner Collection in Vienna (on permanent loan in the Albertina), the National Gallery in Washington and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Exceptional pieces by Albers, Calder, Chagall, Chamberlain, Ernst, Francis, Jawlensky, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Marini, Miró, Poliakoff, Richter, Soulages, Vasarely, Warhol and Wesselmann are permanently on display in the 200 square meter gallery in Zurich.
