“Winter exhibition The Hague Salon

Three years ago, in The Hague, a fine tradition was born from the collaboration between three art dealers, who are specialized in Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Inspired by 19th century art salons, Jaap Nieuwenhuizen Segaar, Rachel Reijers and Marc Knook joined forces to organize a collaborative exhibition every season. The Winter exhibition, which is held on the 10th and 11th of February, coincides with the 3rd anniversary of their collaboration, and promises to be an extra special edition”…

…”The Winter exhibition will also present an overview of art works that have been sold or borrowed to museums. A particularly interesting piece is a unique copper inkstand from 1903, the sale of which to the The Hague Gemeentemuseum was recently finalized.”
