Post War & Contemporary Art

About Post-War & Contemporary Art

Manuela Sommeregger specialised in contemporary and graphic art while working at several international auction houses before joining Venduehuis The Hague. Together with our advisor Peter van Beveren she is in charge of the Post-War & Contemporary Art Auctions. Their area of expertise covers post-war and contemporary art. The collections in this category are sold in spring (around April) and autumn (around October). Venduehuis realises outstanding prices for internationally renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Louise Bourgeois, Yayoi Kusama, Willem Hussem, Lucebert, Man Ray, Beatriz Milhazes, Roger Raveel,  Bram Bogart, David Hockney, Ad Dekkers, Erwin Olaf amongst others. Venduehuis The Hague is also dedicated to showcasing works by emerging artists such as Slavs & Tartars and Ana Cardosa. The Post-War and Contemporary Art department organises auctions of fine paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints & multiples, photographs and installations. 

Our April 2021 Post-War & Contemporary Art hammer & online auction achieved an amazing result with more 90% sold lots, and €1.16 million in sales results. The highlight of the hammer auction is an artwork by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, which got hammered down for €130.000, more than four times its low estimate. Further top results include a painting by the Dutch artist Lucebert, which fetched €60.000 and ‘Le faux pas’ art piece by Man Ray, sold for €36.000.
