nce € 40,000 was paid for a painting by Floris Verster. Now this result is in the past. At a recent NRC auction of 11 June the bidding ended at € 72,500 (incl. costs, hammer price € 57,000), and this time for a wax crayon drawing with a starting bid of € 10,000. Het Warmonderhek, a work from 1894, which had disappeared for almost 90 years, is considered to be a highlight in the oeuvre of the Leiden artist and one of the earliest examples of Dutch modernism.
