Established in 1999 by Christophe Van de Weghe, Van de Weghe Fine Art is a secondary market gallery specializing in work by Modern, Post-War and Contemporary European and American artists. We have a strong reputation for historically focused exhibitions and accompanying publications that have a sound impact both critically and on the secondary market. Serving an international clientele, we endeavor to work closely with estates, foundations and other institutions to promote the highest quality, connoisseurship, and value for our collectors.
Van de Weghe Fine Art opened in a townhouse space on East 76th Street at the turn of the millennium. The gallery quickly expanded to a 3500+ square foot space in Chelsea the following year, with an inaugural exhibition of monumental sculpture by Frank Stella, Richard Serra, and Alexander Calder. In fall of 2008, Van de Weghe opened an additional gallery space in New York, at 1018 Madison Avenue. This historically land-marked building, notable for its black-and-white terrazzo created by Alexander Calder in 1970, has been home to some of New York’s most respected galleries since the 1960s. We currently operate out of the Madison Avenue gallery exclusively.
As a secondary market gallery, art fairs are also an important component of our program. We present annually at 7 fairs: TEFAF Maastricht; Art Basel Hong Kong; TEFAF at the Park Avenue Armory, New York; Art Basel, Switzerland; Frieze Masters, Regent’s Park, London; FIAC, Paris, at the Grand Palais; and Art Basel Miami Beach.
In 2010, Van de Weghe Fine Art was elected to the Art Dealers’ Association of America. Christophe Van de Weghe is on the FIAC Selection Committee and is the Chairman of the Modern and Contemporary Sections of TEFAF.
