Painting of the Month


Several new acquisitions - come visit our new showroom

Lately we acquired a large collection of works by Johannes Holst and - for the first time - paintings by his early deceased son (Hans) Herbert Holst from a private collector from Northern Germany. Furthermore we extended our portfolio with several interesting new acquisitions in the categories seascapes, harbour paintings and ship portraits. Therefore we would like to invite all customers and interested people to a round tour that have not visited our new showroom in Hamburg yet. Simply make an appointment with us by phone, contact form or E-Mail. Of course you can also take a look at all of our new acquisitions calmly in our online shop.
