Venduehuis der Notarissen

”Auctioneers with a passion for Art and antique” is the motto of the Venduehuis der Notarissen in The Hague.

In 2002, it was 200 years ago that this auction house officially opened its doors in the city of The Hague making it the oldest auction house in The Netherlands. Various important historical auctions took place at the Venduehuis, the most famous one being: “The girl with the pearl earring” by Johannes Vermeer.

There are three different types of auctions being held:

• The Spring – and Autumn Art and Antique (twice each year)

• A monthly Art and antique auction

• The Venduehuis Next Door auction (online only).

Many different articles come under the hammer at these auctions, varying from paintings, porcelain, silver, jewellery, sculptures and furniture, including Indonesian and post-war art, old masters and complete inventories of good quality.

The Venduehuis is established in the former residence of the Mayor of The Hague, in the Nobelstraat. This street can be seen on a 15th century city plan and owes its name to the noble families who lived there at that time. Amongst them were various mayors, father and son Christiaan and Constantijn Huygens, renowned mathematicians/astrologers.

In short, in an unique and historical setting stands a modern and all-round auction house where people work with a passion for art and antique.

Two doves under a blossoming branch Lee Man Fong's 'long' signature and stamp, threequarters down on the right-hand side in black and red. oil on board, 101x49 cm Provenance: Private collection The Netherlands. Lee Man Fong rendered several versions of the ‘doves’-theme. The painting at auction stands out because of its exceptionally harmonious composition and beautiful colouring. The tree and the cherry-red blossoms enclose the two birds to form a moving unity against the subtle celadon-coloured background. The composition and the alignment of the doves, the delicate impasto of the applied paint, the subtle colour palette, using vivid indigo blue here and there and the soft celadon-colour in the background, set this painting apart from other 'doves' by Lee Man Fong. This painting can be categorized as one of Lee Man Fong's more rare spring season 'doves', defined by the brightly blossoming flowers at the upper end of the painting, contrary to his more subdued autumn and winter season animal paintings. The painting is considered to be one of Lee Man Fong's earlier 'doves'. The late owners met Lee Man Fong in Indonesia where he told them that he considered this painting to be one of his favourites. The painting has remained in the family since it was acquired in 1962 and has had no public viewing since. Having owned several works by Lee Man Fong and also having met him, the owners kept this specific painting because of both Lee Man Fong's and the owners' view, exceptional quality - especially when compared to the numerous other 'doves' Lee Man Fong painted over the years.
