Wilhelmina von Blumenthal at Hydra, 2023.
Wilhelmina von Blumenthal read Modern Languages at Oxford and achieved a Distinction in her Masters on Renaissance Art at the Warburg Institute in London. She cut her teeth in the world of contemporary art at the Nosbaum Reding Gallery in Luxembourg where she learned the internal running of a gallery and was introduced to the world of art fairs.

In 2022 she led the coordination and installation of 23 monumental sculptures for the exhibition Nothing is Permanent in the city of Esch-sur-Alzette, last year’s European Capital of Culture. Amongst them were works by Tony Cragg, Wim Delvoye, Katinka Bock, Tina Gillen, Hisae Ikenaga, Barthélémy Toguo, Bertrand, Ney, Wang Du, Guillaume Bijl, Bernard Venet and Erwin Wurm.

She was also the driving force behind Barthélémy Toguo’s retrospective exhibition Faith Can Move Mountains at the Villa Merkel in Esslingen which brought together hundreds of watercolours, paintings, ceramics, installations and enamels from 1995 to the present day, including works that were created especially for the exhibition. For this she assisted Toguo in the production of three ceramic series in Malaga half of which were also exhibited at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

She has been on the panel for the first edition of the Andreas Neumann Prize in Saarbrucken and toured with Nosbaum Reding on the main European Art Fairs showing a range of emerging and established artists.
