New book Rudolf Bonnet

Rudolf Bonnet (1895 – 1978)
Auction 6 December 2019

Zeeuws Veilinghuis will re-publish the book ‘Rudolf Bonnet, een zondagskind’. The original book, written by Dr. H. de Roever – Bonnet and published in 1993, has always been the standard work about this artist. However, it had a limited reach as it was only published in Dutch. The new book will be in English and therefore reach a much more international audience. In addition, it will contain more photos and the design will be of higher level.

Over the last 10 years, Zeeuws Veilinghuis has auctioned ca. 140 works by Rudolf Bonnet, including one of no less than € 475,000! A selection of these works will be displayed in the book. Important pieces from museums and private collections will also be included. If you have a top work by Bonnet, it can still be added.

For more information, please contact our Indonesian Art specialist René de Visser via or 0031-(0)118-650 680.

Auctions June 2019

The auctions confirmed the high demand for high-quality objects once again. All results listed below are hammer prices.

The Indonesian Art auction showed several top results again. Two examples are ‘Balinese weaver’ by Lee Man Fong (1913 – 1988) for € 210,000 (see image) and ‘Legong dancer’ by Willem Dooyewaard for € 150,000. Of all 205 auctioned paintings by Dooyewaard, two of the three highest auction results (worldwide) have now been realized with us.

Another highlight of the June auctions was the M.C. Escher section: many great results and world records for ‘Dew drop’ and ‘Sky and water II’. The latter was sold for no less than € 65,000!

Last but not least, our Silver & Jewellery section shined bright with the sale of a 12.62 ct diamond for € 58,000.
