From 2006-2019, the month of May at Galerie Gabrie was known as “Muench Month”, the month when we consistently presented new paintings by the California painter. In doing so, we made a major contribution to the formation of his artistic legacy, reputation, and career.
It is a known fact that not every painting, created even by historic artists, is a masterpiece. Thus, Galerie Gabrie has discerningly been selective about the paintings offered through the gallery enabling collectors to buy with confidence while simultaneously building a reputation for quality…
that’s what good galleries do!
As is customary in the art world, paintings can reappear on the market for any number of reasons. Collectors turn to us for assistance which, in turn, offers us the opportunity to again be selective, securing only quality works for the next generation of collectors. After all, collecting is a form of stewardship.
The best part of this equation?
Not being bound by retail commitments, we are often able to offer works below market value passing that savings on to the consumer.
No unknown, no waiting, no negotiating, no auction stress…it’s a win, win!
Before you now stands such an opportunity.

It is thought that the name peony originates from the Greek word Paeon.
One myth links the name Peony back to a nymph named Paeonia whose beauty attracted the attention of Apollo. Out of spite, Aphrodite turned her into a peony. This legend is likely what led to the flower’s meaning of poor luck in the Victorian age.
Peonies are recorded dating as far back as 1000BC and by the 8th century, they reached Japan from China. In the Eastern world, peonies were mainly used for their medicinal properties.
The peony's roots and seeds were frequently used to treat headache and asthma and to relieve pain associated with childbirth.
To me, they exude joy and luxury!
Ted Goerschner (1933-2012)
Having flown almost 20,000 miles recently, I finally arrived home to California with great joy and a good dose of jet lag. This enabled me to rise earlier than usual for my walk, reminding me of the beauty and stillness of the early morning – the quietude of the breaking day…the early morning hours often dedicated to contemplation or meditation or prayer…
the quiet before the city awakes.
Ted Goerschner, who was himself a man of the early morning, captured this perfectly in his ambient painting titled “Morning Walk”. The bold brushstrokes, movement and action of the piece are almost a contradiction to the peaceful mood which he created. Speaking more profoundly with fewer strokes was his lifetime achievement. He touched the hearts of his collectors with his flamboyant, bombastic palette and
This piece is one of his gems!
Outside his usual subject matter, it will find its home with someone who loves both peace and action, boldness and quiet,
ever-changing nature in all its glory.
Inquire and it will be yours.
