The Œuvre-Katalog Gallery is the primary Gallery for KarlGoetz.com.  Unlike the other Galleries that contain sub-grouped artwork examples for ease of viewing, this gallery will contain the most comprehensive information regarding Karl Goetz artwork and ephemera.  When using the search box you may find multiple instances of the same K-# as a result.  The link pointing to this gallery will contain the most comprehensive information, and thus, should be viewed first if your needs require a more robust data set.


This gallery is still in its initial populating phase.  In other words, it will take some time for us to get the full suite of material into this database.  With this is mind, the WWI and KarlGoetz.com Collection galleries are the most complete for the time being.  Please have patience, we've got several thousand pages to integrate into this gallery. 


Don't forget to refresh your browser with each visit in order to view the most recent additions to the gallery.


For visitors that have no interest in the more esoteric, but necessary, discussions regarding proposed data schemes and heirarchies that are presented below, then feel free to use the following link to go directly to the current gallery offerings.

The goal for this gallery is to eventually contain a dedicated page for every conceivable piece of art Goetz created. This gallery, by nature, will always be a work in progress.  Numbered numerically, each page will contain the piece’s description and any information currently known about it, including, but not limited to; all types and varieties, discussions in artistic styles, iconography, and the placement of the art piece within its historical context. With time, rarity classifications will be established.  This gallery will not be limited to finished art pieces alone but will also contain intermediary production artifacts from concept drawings to trial casts.  Additionally, ephemeral artifacts associated to Goetz will be available for study through this gallery.

Karl Goetz’ lifework was personally numbered by him and ranged from Opus 1 to Opus 636. As might be expected with such a sizable oeuvre, many pieces were not accounted for within his original listings. It is apparent, since Kienast’s Volume II was published in 1986, that a respectable number of these additional pieces exist.  Many can be found in past auction house catalogs, listed in the most convenient manner to expedite the auction’s immediate listing needs*.  These ‘new’ pieces are in need of inclusion into the logical K-# assignment strategy which this gallery will be able to provide.




It is imperative that the integrity of the original Goetz/Kienast numbering system be maintained, at least for the time being. The Œuvre-Katalog items will be numerically listed in the following manner using Goetz' and Kienast’s original numbering system.  Any new (post 1986) information pertaining to the original 717 art pieces will be added to their appropriate K-# page.


Kienast Work



Goetz I = K1 through K-636
Goetz II = K637 through K717


Research findings for new or unattributed pieces NOT associated with any of the original listings above will begin at K-800.  This will provide a clean and logical break between previous research by G.W. Kienast and new research by H.S. Goodman while at the same time accommodating the myriad of new items with classification needs.  Thus, the following additional Kienast numbering extensions will be used:


Goodman Work



K800-999 Unattributed and newly discovered art (medals, medallions, patterns, models, etc.)
K1000-1999 Drawings (sketch, concept, formal)

K2000-2999 Jewelry, Bijouterie, Cross-over materials
K3000+-Ephemera (Furniture, tools, equipment, personal papers, etc.)
