UTE EGGELING AND MICHAEL BECK MAKE SPACE FOR THEIR INTERESTS AND THEIR LOVE OF ART AND HELP SHAPE THE SOCIAL DISCOURSE OF OUR TIME.
Beck & Eggeling has made a diverse contribution to cultural life for 25 years. A consistent, high-quality program with impressionist, expressionist, classical and postwar modernist works has allowed Beck & Eggeling to establish itself as one of the leading galleries in the international art market.
At the same time, the gallery is committed to international contemporary art. Beck & Eggeling is currently staging exciting exhibitions at three extraordinary venues in Düsseldorf and Vienna. Furthermore, the gallery is represented at prestigious art fairs worldwide with this differentiated and ambitious offering.
With well over 100 publications from their in-house art publishers, Beck & Eggeling facilitates new knowledge and enriches their exhibitions with their own texts as well as scholarly articles about art by prominent authors. Driven by curiosity and a love of art, Ute Eggeling and Michael Beck also carry out large-scale international projects outside their gallery space.
Gallery history and locations
Dr. Ute Eggeling and Michael Beck founded their gallery in October 1994 in a Leipzig townhouse. The villa was transformed into an exhibition space for modern art of the masters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as well as contemporary artists. It also provided a forum for examining interdisciplinary art forms and exploring the affinities between visual arts and music.
In 1998, Ute Eggeling and Michael Beck decided to close their Leipzig site and further pursue their international gallery program in Dusseldorf and New York. At the turn of the millennium, the gallery finally moved into its current premises on the ground floor of an eighteenth-century mansion in the heart of Düsseldorf's old town.
In the spring of 2006 Beck & Eggeling opened its new quarters, additional premises directly opposite the existing gallery. The loft-like nature of this space, with its natural skylight, a former print studio, is ideal for the presentation of contemporary art. Since then Beck & Eggeling has offered a platform here for both established and younger artists.
Continuing to expand, Beck & Eggeling International Fine Art opened a branch in Vienna in September 2016. With salon-like rooms on the first floor of Margaretenstraße 5, the gallery owners are committed to international art dealing in particular and offer their customers another exciting cultural environment in addition to Düsseldorf.
Another of the gallery’s predilections is the genre of sculpture, which is exhibited in large format in the private sculpture garden in Dortmund and can also be visited by appointment.
