Gallery Information

  • Luc De Backker Director
  • Pieter De Backker Director/ contactperson

With the opening of a gallery in Brussels 15 years ago, specialized in medieval art, it was an old dream that came true. In our incessant quest for purity, authenticity and beauty, we always choose for emotion being reinforced by the quality. Our collection may justifiably be deemed unusual; in our work, we bear in mind not only those traditional collectors but also young collectors and art lovers in general. Many of our clients bought their first medieval piece from us, which means a lot to us.
We set great store in establishing personal contact with the visitors during the fair with the express purpose of being able to illustrate and convey our passion for medieval art. We feel that it is part of our mission to bring medieval art and the general public in closer contact with each other. Every year, we undertake this task in various ways including our attendance of various fairs where each season we exhibit a new collection presented as part of an artistically enlightening display.
Medieval art is no longer considered as a religious phenomenon only. It still has the strong spiritual power to touch people such as it did already 500 years ago but people nowadays are also able to look at a medieval sculpture as an art object.

It is always a pleasure to catch up, to deepen relationships and to enjoy beautiful things together. So we gladly invite our friends collectors and artlovers at our private home where we have our exposition gallery today.

Artists Exhibited at the fair:

  • Gilbert1


    Biography : Gilbert1 is a real dabbler coming from graffiti/street art culture, a visual artist working in the streets and in the abandoned places as much as in his studio. Having devoted himself to calligraphy and typography for a long time, he now expresses himself through abstract and unstructured figures which represents tracks of a decadent society, using different techniques such as painting, screenprint, sculpture, installation, vidéo. He has developed an apparently chaotic universe, raw and authentic, dynamic and powerful, related to a search for movement, and some deformation of space, which symbolizes a kind of emergency. Recently he has realized a stop motion film and an open air museum on 13000 square feet in a lost place. Gilbert1 was born in 1980. He lives and works in Nancy (Fr). He has painted and/or exhibited in Paris, Lyon, St Etienne, Marseille, Epinal, Nancy, Metz, Stuttgart, Roma, Barcelona, New York, San Jose, Los Angeles. Exhibition : EXHIBITIONS
