Harpers Bazaar Powercast - Dutch spoken - 25 minutes
Art is an enrichment, according to Van der Ven. Art, especially antique art, has a soul and a value for man and society. Bazaar's editor-in-chief Miluska van 't Lam talked to art dealer Nynke van der Ven about her passion and expertise. Many women are interested in art, but simply don't know where to start. What is a good start? What is quality? What is good advice for a beginning buyer? Nynke Van der Ven talks about the passion of art dealers and the value of beautiful pieces in the house, in a Bazaars Powercast - March 2020.
Royal Association of Fine Art Dealers in The Netherlands was founded in 1911, it is the oldest and most renowned association of art dealers in the Netherlands. We know better than anyone how important quality is. Anyone who buys something beautiful wants to know exactly what he is buying. Dating, attributions, condition and conservation of antiques, everything has to be right. That is why only the best traders are allowed to wear the Royal Association of Fine Art Dealers (VHOK) logo. Our members are the eyes of the art and antiques market and together strive for the highest standards of conaisseurship, knowledge and ethical standards. We have laid this down together and for customers in the 'Rules of Conduct' and the 'General Terms and Conditions for Sales and Services'. With over 60 members you will find all imaginable disciplines. Together we therefore have an unprecedented amount of knowledge in-house. We share this knowledge with participants of our Art & Antiques in Practice course.
