Art from Six Centuries

The auction of 16th & 17th October

Whether it’s a 16th century biblical scene, an undiscovered textile design by Carel Visser, three different Rietveld chairs, a signed photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe or a screenprint by Marina Abramović, you could find it all in our recent sale of more than half a thousand artworks consigned by readers of the leading Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad. It was a spectacular auction: a multiple by Botero went 140 times higher than the starting bid, from € 200 to € 28.000. There was also a lot of competition for the works of Jan Voerman, out of which the one from the collection of Henk van Ulsen was sold for € 12.700 with a starting bid of € 1.800. Jan Toorop achieved nice results as well: € 5.o00 for a set of lithographs (starting bid € 2.000) and € 9.500 for a watercolour (starting bid € 1.000). Sale of the works by Thijs Rinsema exceeded our expectations: € 21.600 for a small collage (starting bid € 10.000) and € 6.100 & € 5.300 for two drawings respectively, both with an opening bid of € 1.000 (NB all prices incl. auction fees). You can see the sale results on the auction page when you are logged in.
