Gierhards Antiques-Fine Art
In 1977, Erwin Gierhards founded a gallery specializing in 18th century furniture and works of art, which he established a year later on the Bilkerstraße in Dusseldorf.
In the following years of the opening, wanting to broaden the scope of the gallery, Gierhards included furniture and works of art from the French 18th century.
In 1998 he moved the gallery from a shop to a complete floor in a building on the Benrather road, in order to be able to present his selection of high quality furniture and works of art from the Louis XV and Louis XVI periods in an authentic context. With an exhibition area of 320 square meters, the new residence permitted an adequate presentation in a series of three salons, making up the framework for a specifically arranged ensemble.
On 1 January 2004, Ralph Gierhards took over the gallery in Düsseldorf from his father Erwin Gierhards. During his career, he acquired practical experience both in Germany and abroad, for instance when working for the auction houses Kunsthaus am Museum in Cologne and Neumeister in Munich. Having worked a year at Christie’s London, he joined Christie’s New York where he expanded his knowledge in the field of antiques, notably furniture.
Since 1993 Ralph Gierhards has been participating in the prominent international art fair TEFAF in Maastricht.
In 2012 he moved the gallery to the Königsallee 44, Düsseldorf.
Furthermore Ralph Gierhards joined the Exhibition Committee of the art fair “Cologne Fine Art & Antiques” in May 2009.
