Regulary, I organize a sales exhibition on a specific theme. Those exhibitions, which take place in my Antwerp gallery (location), are all accompagnied by an illustrated catalogue.
You can access all these catalogues in PDF-file by clicking on one of the pictures below.
To receive future invitations for my exhibitions, just send me your name and address (contact). So, you will also receive my newsletters.
My 18th (Artes Minores. Miniature Masterpieces in Ivory, Enamel and Wood (1200-1700)), as well as my 17th catalogue (Tam Sublimibus. Competitively Priced Works of Art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance), can be accessed online as from today.
The term Artes Minores refers to the totality of applied arts. The term may sound rather demeaning as if applied art were a less illustrious form of art than painting, architecture or sculpture. Nevertheless, I did not choose the title because the works of art presented in this catalogue are of a “less illustrious character” -quite the opposite is true- but simply because, on the one hand, the applied arts take a prominent place in this catalogue and on the other, all the objects concerned are small in size. Indeed, in the present publication I describe and illustrate sixteen smaller works of art - some of which have almost minuscule dimensions - nonetheless, each of them testifies to an extraordinary quality and a high degree of virtuosity.
It is especially the late Gothic art of ivory carving which is extremely well represented here, but there are also five champlevé, translucent and painted enamels and some 16th and 17th century small sculptures and reliefs.
