Edwin Becker (1963) studied history of art at the Catholic University of Nijmegen and wrote a dissertation on the Viennese Secessionist painter Wilhelm List. Since 1992 he was exhibitions curator at the Van Gogh Museum, specializing in fine and applied arts of the fin-de-siècle. He organised for example shows like: In perfect Harmony: picture + frame 1850-1920 (1995), Franz von Stuck: eros & pathos (1995-96), Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1996-97), Vienna 1900: portrait and interior (1997), Fred Holland Day: symbolist photographer (2000-2001), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (2003-2004), L’Art Nouveau: La Maison Bing (2004-2005) and Egon Schiele (2005). Since 2006 he was Head of Exhibitions at the Van Gogh Museum and recently Chief Curator of Exhibitions, being responsible for the exhibition-programming in general, such as Dreams of Nature. Symbolism from Van Gogh to Kandinsky.

Edwin Becker often gives lectures, seminars, talks, workshops for international Universities, Museums, and cultural institutions like the Amsterdam School of the Arts, and organizes art historical trips to various European cities. Currently he is also supervising at the Van Gogh Museum the course “The Art of Making Art Exhibitions”, a chance for creative young people to learn about every facet of creating an exhibition.
