The German-French couple Franz and Nadia van der Grinten opened the Van der Grinten Gallery in Cologne in 2002. Their program includes photography, painting, drawing, works on paper, sculpture by German and international young and established artists.
In the summer of 2016, Van der Grinten Galerie moved into its new space in a beautiful, historically striking Bel Étage in the center of Cologne. These extraordinary exhibition spaces resemble a private salon and create a very personal atmosphere of calm and concentration in which visitors feel at ease and which has become a trademark for Van der Grinten Galerie. There, one is invited in a special way to an exciting dialogue between historical and contemporary.
