We are proud to present our upcoming auction of 19th Century Paintings & a collection of works by Old Masters. This collection is of a high quality and includes many well-known artists working in the 17th to early 20th century.
Partly due to the exhibition of the collection of the TV maker Jef Rademakers in the Haags Gemeentemuseum and in The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, there is a lot of attention for the Dutch Romantic School. Important Dutch romantic masters that will be featured in our auction are: Leickert, Eversen, Schelfhout, Klombeck and Koekkoek.
During Schelfhout's lifetime he was known as the best painter in the Netherlands and Belgium. He was able to give an almost lifelike representation of what he saw through close observation. The Strand with bomb barges and a few fishermen's people is a good example of this. When you see this work you will understand why this artist has been awarded national and international prizes.
Johannes Bernard Klombeck was the best student of Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, who certainly stepped out of the shadow of his master. He is one of the leading artists of the Romantic School. Winter in the Reichswald is a museum piece that would not look out of place on the walls of major museums.
The most popular interpreter of cityscapes in the 19th century is without a doubt Adrianus Eversen. A rich tradition, continued in warm colors and detail. His works are more of a personal impression than a topographical accuracy and take you into the fairytale world of the arts. As a result, several European royal houses have works by Eversen hanging in their private rooms.
Among the portraits you will find a portrait by Nicolaas Pieneman, depicting the poet and playwright Joost van den Vondel.
In addition, you will find a Portrait of a Gentleman made by Rembrandt's pupil, Nicolaes Maes. During his lifetime, Maes was the most in-demand portrait painter, it was an honor to be immortalized by the artist. All his portraits are therefore descendants of the prominent families of our golden age.
In addition, a special work by Isaac Israels, The Drummer, is being offered in this auction. The painting shows a Scala girl with a drum and was made around 1908-1914. Two comparable works are in the collection of the Rijksmuseum and the Teylers Museum.
We also offer you an exceptional and abstract work by Breitner, depicting Moored boats in winter in an Amsterdam canal; as well as by the other 'Rotterdam Breitner' August Willem van Voorden the painting Horses with dragging carts at the Boompjes, Rotterdam.
The founder of modernism, Jan Toorop, is also represented in this auction with a very special painting Oudervreugde. On the back of the work you will find a handwritten label by the artist with title and signature for participation in the exhibition of the Sezession in Vienna in 1909. One of the founders of this movement was Gustav Klimt, who increasingly wanted to break free from the academic tradition.
In addition, many international artists can be found in the range, such as Barraud, Cipriani, Dillens, Schill, Van Severdonck and Weiser.
All of the above is of course only a small selection from the collection. The catalog is available online and in book form. We hope to welcome you to the auction house during the viewing days and the auction!
