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, Jaap Wagemaker, Karel Appel, Co Westerik, 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. 

We leave another wonderful in-house hammer auction and online auction for Post-War & Contemporary Art behind us. In April 2022, this auction achieved an amazing result with € 787.000 in sales. A highlight was ‘Geen bloed op je bordje’, a painting by Dutch artist Co Westerik, which was sold for € 52.000. ‘Witblancwit’ by Bram Bogart also reached a superb result, going for € 28.000. Other top results include a lithograph by Roy Lichtenstein and a painting by JCJ Vanderheyden, both of which sold for € 24.000, double their low estimates.
