We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to view prices. It is not by our choice. Many of our artists and vendors don’t allow us to publish prices. We are working with them to ultimately have prices for everything on the web site and until then, you may inquire by e-mail and we will answer as quickly as possible.
PRICE RESEARCH / APPRAISALS / GENERAL INTEREST – PLEASE READ
If you are trying to determine the value of a work you own, or doing research for an appraisal or just trying to get an idea of the general price level of the gallery, please contact us through the general contact form here:
We will direct your request to the appropriate person to help you. Much work and research goes into determining the value of a work of art and an appraisal takes into consideration many factors besides the price of a comparable work. Please be respectful with the time of our art consultants.
Eberhard Hueckstaedt was born in Potsdam, Germany in 1936 where he survived the World War II bombings of Potsdam and neighboring Berlin. He lives and works in Germany. Hueckstaedt’s painting style employs a unique combination of watercolor, charcoal and plaster creating transparencies and variation in stroke and line. While enjoying great success as a professional artist, traveling and studying throughout the Soviet Union in the late 1970s, the young artist struggled with the oppression of communism. He discovered that a file had been created marking him as a dissident. Because of this, he relocated his family to West Germany in 1985 leaving behind an entire body of work. It proved worthwhile though as he was able to create new pieces that gained him exposure and recognition throughout Central Europe. As a young man, Hueckstaedt participated in the restoration of churches throughout East Germany. He attended college for applied arts in Heiligendamm and fine arts in Dresden. The State Gallery for emerging art in Frankfurt first acquired his paintings, after which his career skyrocketed. He has been featured in many exhibitions in Europe and the United States. His work is included in many collections worldwide such as the Berlin Albertinum Museum. Hueckstaedt oftentimes paints faces that inspire him such as artists, composers, actors, actresses and authors.
