Sarah de Clercq, Head of Old Masters, Amsterdam commented: “We were extremely pleased with the solid results of the Old Masters & 19th Century Art including Dutch Impressionism sale. Both the Old Masters, led by Vrancx and Koninck, and the 19th century paintings, illustrated by strong prices for Springer, Mesdag and Isaac Israels, showcased a healthy market. In a packed Amsterdam saleroom, this auction attracted global participation from bidders all over the world, who had a strong interest in paintings which were fresh to the market. We are looking forward to the coming auction season at Christie’s Amsterdam from October to December 2015.”
