On the eve of the ‘Indonesian Art, Keris & Applied Arts’ Auction, we spoke with Nasim van Veenendaal. His grandfather, engineer Emile van Veenendaal, amassed a unique collection of keris in the span of about 70 years, which will be auctioned on 7 March.
‘Museum Het Schip’ presents the exhibition “Indonesia and the Amsterdam School”, open until August 27th. Frans Leidelmeijer features in the accompanying documentary, which is sponsored by Venduehuis The Hague.
It is with pride that we look back at the Winter Auctions of 2022! More than 1.500 lots were up for auction, including jewellery, silver, Asian Art, Asian and European porcelain, furniture, European glassware, sculptures, and decorative art. This successful series of auctions fetched more than 1,7 million in sales, with close to 75 percent of all lots sold.
Our Home & Interiors: Antique Furniture & Design, Ceramics & Decorative Art auction on 15 December 2022 included a peculiar lot: a silver box containing a lock of hair and a handwritten note stating that the lock of hair was taken from the body of President George Washington. This item with an interesting provenance was highlighted by the Dutch TV channel Omroep West, Dutch radio channel NOS Radio 1 and children's news broadcast NOS Jeugdjournaal.

On 5 and 6 October, more than 650 lots from the estate of Antoon Gaemers were up for auction at Venduehuis The Hague. Gaemers, the renowned horologist from The Hague, passed away in 2020. In an auction titled ‘The Antoon Gaemers Collection – Four Generations of Chronometry’, his collection, including clocks, wrist- and pocket watches, tools for clock- and watchmakers, watch keys and books, was on offer. The auction was very successful.
“Water, the idea of drawing water, is always appealing to me. If it’s clear water anyway, transparent water. You can look on it, through it, into it, see it as volume, see it as surface…”
On Friday evening 21 October 2022, Venduehuis The Hague organises an online charity auction for the ‘artist-in-residence’ (AiR) programme of the Van GoghHuis in Zundert. 48 works will be on offer, created by artists who have worked in the studios of the Van GoghHuis or have had an exhibition there. All profits will go to the artist-in-residence project.
