Galerie Utermann was founded in 1853 in Dortmund and is still family led four generations later. Having taken over the mangement in 1972, Wilfried Utermann set the gallery´s focus on German Expressionism and Classical Modernism. The range was extended by Post war art in the eighties. Since then artists like Fritz Winter, Emil Schumacher and Karl Hartung are represented by the gallery. There is a close cooperation in the contemporary sector with the painter Horst Antes, the sculptor Abraham David Christian, as well as with the studio Norbert Tadeusz.
