Using the auction

Classical Dutch art expresses the history of our country.

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.”
