NRC #14 -

From Dutch Masters to painted Penguin Books

An action-packed auction

The catalogue of the 14th edition of NRC Veilingen is now online. With almost 500 works, there is much on offer. Competing for the limelight is the above commissioned piece by Harland Miller, easily recognisable as one of his famous paintings from the Penguin cover series with catchy made-up titles. Another highlight is the beautiful conversation piece by the Dutch Master of the Golden Age, Adriaen van de Velde, which is perhaps not as innocent as it seems. Also noteworthy are unique works on paper by Edgar Degas, Floris Arntzenius, H.W. Mesdag, Jan Schoonhoven and Keith Haring, an exceptional sculptural relief by Bram Bogart, a colourful collection of works by Walasse Ting, an irresistible Bossche bol by Sigurdur Gudmundsson, and as the cherry on top: an immaculate copy of Flash by Andy Warhol in the original perspex box.
