NRC Auctions - Art, Jewellery & Bags - Aftersale

Adams is pleased to announce that our upcoming Art, Bags and Jewellery auction is now online. The Evening Sale includes pieces from the second part of The Rinsema Collection, such as the original collage from c. 1923 and still lifes by Thijs Rinsema himself. Also from the same collection offered are a druksel by H.N. Werkman from the 'Koppenserie' and a still life with marguerites by Jan Sluijters. 

One of the rarities from the upcoming auction is a selection of works from the estate of Bart van der Leck, including the original sketches for the illustrations in the Song of Solomon, published by Willem Versluys in 1905, lithographs, two iconic tiles, and an original painted terracotta vase. This diverse collection provides a rare glimpse into Van der Leck's artistic journey and offers enthusiasts an opportunity to own a piece of his legacy. Another member of the De Stijl represented in this auction is Theo van Doesburg with a stained-glass window designed for the Spangen district of Rotterdam. In 1989, the windows were removed as part of an urban renewal project. Subsequently, only a few survived which makes it a very unique piece.

A selection of five works by Gerrit Benner, including Rooster (1961) exhibited at ‘In de ban van Benner’ at the Singer Laren museum in 1989, is also offered in the current sale. Other highlights comprise an abstract painting by Geer van Velde, 1 ¢ life portfolio which includes 62 lithographs by various artists brought together by Walasse Ting and a monumental work by Bengt Lindström. Four pieces by Willem Hussem, including three paintings from his ‘golden period’- the years between 1957 and 1967, are offered in the current auction.

The auction also features a diverse collection of must-haves in the bag and jewellery department. Take the timeless Hermès Kelly 35 in Box leather in Noisette, a rare collector's item from 2001. As for jewellery, the selection is diverse, from a collection of vintage gold bracelets to sophisticated art deco rings.

Encompassing over 400 lots from art to jewellery and bags, varying in technique, size, period, value and style, the auction offers something for an art enthusiast or fashionista. This is only a foretaste of what NRC Auctions has to offer. To find out more, check our catalogue!
