I want to do a shop with a public gallery listing all my products, with texts and images. The gallery is not a shop, you cannot buy.

Behind it, I want a private section with a shop, where the same products are listed in tables with all the necessary options to buy. Each customer for the shop will have a separate account.

In the shop and the gallery products are on different page according to their categories.

Is Magento able to do that ?

Yes, this can be done.

Create your web site, have all of your products listed in a gallery in different categories for your products. You can design this gallery yourself or use WordPress for a little help.

Next, create a private separate product page, subdomain, or Magento hosted eCommerce solution with a required log-in / sign-up page to reach the shop. Customers can view your products through your gallery and then purchase them from you on your Magento product/category page.

I would recommend running your shop on a sub-domain like: shop.youronlinedomain.com for Magento.

with this solution, the gallery is separated from magento, i'd like that the creation of product in magento would impact the shop and the gallery at the same time. – Sylario May 28 '12 at 10:59
@Sylario - I'm not quite sure I understand what you are asking, could you please clarify your response? It looks as if you are saying that when you create a product in Magento, you want the shop and the gallery to update all at once? – toughskin May 28 '12 at 12:02
i want to be able to add a product in one backend, to have it in the "gallery" and in the shop – Sylario May 28 '12 at 17:01
