Condition Report

Usually 18th Century Chargers need some restoration in case the owner prefers a perfect plate.After restoration chips will be invisible. For me, I never restored this plate as I appreciate it’s actual condition. The Charger has no crack’s at all, only several very small chips around the edge and 2 chips on the backside, which are 0,5 cm each.

Price of the Charger is € 1.500. Restoration can be done on request and will be € 250.

Wall covering : Frick Collection

Above: Interior Frick Museum New York

One of the eye-catching items at the Frick Museum Collection is the set of Wall Covering Paintings as presented on the photo above.

Although wall covering paintings were very popular in the 18th century, nowadays the original pieces are very rare to find.

Set of 10

Similar set of Wall Covering Paintings | ca 1800

 

This set of 10 pieces in our collection has been attributed to Gillis Smak Gregoor. More paintings of this artist are in the Museum of Dordrecht and have been part of the interior of the former Castle Develstein in The Netherlands.

The set is in very good condition. The wooden panels have a small wooden frame en can be fit in easily as separate wall covering paintings.

It has been in a Castle in Belgium for decades, before I was able to acquire the paintings.

By the RKD Expert, Curator of Old Master Paintings and Works at RKD The Hague:

“After studying and research of the paintings, the name of the artist Gillis Smak Gregoor (1770-1843) came up. The paintings are of the period around 1800.

The artist is is from Dordrecht, a town near The Haque. He was inspired by the 17th century cattle painters, the most famous artists Paulus Potter and Albert Cuyp.”

Until May 10 you can visit the Museum Mauritshuis, The Hague to enjoy the Exhibition:

Taxatie | Photo by Linelle Deunk

 

Onlangs heb ik een kunstverzameling getaxeerd, die in zijn geheel zal worden geschonken aan een Museum. Als taxateur bepaal ik de waarde van de collectie op basis van schenking. Zowel ten behoeve van de Eigenaar, het Museum als voor de Belastingdienst is de rapportage van belang.

Het betreft een prachtige verzameling Oude Meesters die op termijn publiekelijk kan worden bewonderd. De Eigenaar heeft deze collectie in de afgelopen decennia met zeer veel zorg samengesteld.

Op onze website kunt u informatie vinden over de taxaties die ik uitvoer. Schenking is een reden voor een taxatie, maar ook de verzekering vereist een actuele waardebepaling van uw kostbaarheden. De meeste verzekerings maatschappijen stellen als voorwaarde dat uw kostbaarheden elke 3 jaar getaxeerd worden.

Daarnaast ben ik ook regelmatig te gast bij families die een taxatie voor de verdeling nodig hebben. Bij een dergelijke taxatie wordt de waarde bepaalt op basis van successie.

In the Light of Reality : Wessel Huisman’s USA

 Above: Chicago | 180 x 140 cm | 2009

‘IN THE LIGHT OF REALITY’

Modern Master Wessel Huisman (The Netherlands, 1954)

The paintings show the value of the light on a particular place and time. To add a topographic location to the title might, in the opinion of the painter, result in an obstruction for the spectator to connect his own associations and memory’s to his observation.

On the other hand, it can be worth while to know where and when the painting is situated.

The paintings in this article show the artist’s favorite locations in the USA.
