Our Modern & Contemporary Art Online Only Auction from June 10-29 features more than 100 works from the collection of the Hague collectors Anno Lampe and Lex Plompen. These passionate collectors have brought together an impressive collection in recent decades with a focus on contemporary Dutch art and three-dimensional work. When one collector downsizes, this gives another the opportunity to expand his collection. It is also an excellent opportunity for novice collectors to gain inspiration and purchase their first artwork. At our request, Anno Lampe gives some non-binding tips for building an art collection.
Isaac Israels (1865-1934) was a painter of the mondaine society, the carefree lifestyle, with lots of colourful sparkles. Painting en plein air was Israel’s favourite way of painting.

Two fisher women from Scheveningen on the beach is masterfully executed with broad and quick brushstrokes and hues of pinkish-yellow. A perfect example of Israels at his best.

The nationalist with a strong social humanitarian streak painted a portrait of his mother, sensitive and sorrowful, with the red-white pin of the nationalist movement on her kebaya as a subtle detail.
