The Hague is the Dutch city with the oldest and closest ties with Indonesia. In 2017, we organised our first special auction comprising exclusively Indonesian art. On offer were stunning paintings, Balinese sculptures, Yogya silver, tribal art, and more, all from Indonesia and the former Dutch East Indies. The auction was introduced by the Indonesian ambassador, his excellency I Gusti Agung Wesaka Puja.

Our Indonesian Art Auction was filled with an exciting, varied collection of 126 artworks, featuring volcanoes, landscapes, beautiful women, and other typical Indonesian sights. All of these works were up for auction on 24 November 2022.
