Galerie Poll was founded in 1968 in what was then West Berlin. It has been one of the leading galleries for contemporary art in Germany since 1960 and is now run by Nana Poll together with her mother Eva Poll.
The programme focuses on figurative works in painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture by artists of different generations living in Berlin and Germany.
The gallery publishes reading books, catalogues, and catalogues raisonnés of its artists in POLLeditionen, published by the Verlag Galerie Poll, and it has regularly participated in national and international art fairs since 1969. In addition, numerous original prints by the artists represented by Galerie Poll have been published since the 1960s.
Galerie Poll is a member of the Federal Association of German Galleries and Art Dealers (Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler, BVDG), the Gallery Association of Berlin (Landesverband Berliner Galerien, LVBG), and the Central Archive for German and International Art Market Research (Zentralarchiv für deutsche und internationale Kunstmarktforschung e.V., ZADIK).
