Aude Fonlupt

Auctioneer Art (classical) / Art (modern)

Aude Fonlupt

I love to talk about the long and short stories behind an artwork.

  • Two Master’s degrees at the Sorbonne in History of Art and the Art Market
  • More than five years of experience as an auctioneer
  • Has been an auctioneer at the prestigious Hôtel Drouot
  • Vast network in the French art world

From a young age, Aude Fonlupt visited as many art markets, museums and fairs as possible. When she first walked into an auction house, she knew she only wanted one thing: to become an auctioneer. She took the necessary courses, which in France can take as long as ten years. Even so, Aude Fonlupt was one of the youngest auctioneers to lead the auctions at the Parisian Hôtel Drouot, a task which she took up for more than three years. Over those years she has built a vast network and appraised thousands of objects, which has given her an abundance of knowledge and experience. As an auctioneer, Aude Fonlupt still feels the rush of the auction every day; now at Catawiki. This rush starts when she appraises the lots and ends only when the auction has come to an end. If possible, she would love to report the course of events of the auction live and tell the potential bidders the beautiful stories behind the well-known and lesser known art works. Apart from being an auctioneer, Aude Fonlupt also feels like a promoter of Catawiki. On a daily basis, she heads out to enthuse her network about the auctions she assembles. This way, she hopes to gain the trust of the French art market, so she can keep offering up more and more beautiful works in her auctions.

Daniel Heikens

Auctioneer Art (Photography) / Art (classical)

Classical Dutch art expresses the history of our country.

  • Studied at art school
  • Worked at a renowned antiques shop for years
  • Established a large network
Daniel Heikens

Daniel Heikens thinks that the best thing about classical Dutch art is that it expresses our history. After his studies at art school he became really interested in Dutch classics while working at an antiques shop in Amsterdam. Pieces here portrayed a fantastic era. This is how Daniel learned to really look at classical art, with all its symbolism, while also building up a huge network and thorough knowledge of the art market.

Daniel now uses this knowledge as a Catawiki auctioneer. Quality is the priority for his auctions and, in order to meet his high standards, Daniel maintains great relationships with his suppliers. He also makes regular visits to view fine collections. Daniel personally enjoys the Dutch-Indies art of Isaac Israëls, Willem Hofker and Willem Dooyewaard: “They were captivated by the exotic; they brought a little of that magic back with them to the chilly Netherlands.”
