Hieronymous Bosch at Eurantica
We met him at Eurantica, an annual fine arts fair in Belgium just a few days ago.
The print he is holding is a 17th century Hieronymous Bosch. So it is rather late, but in superb condition, and very rare.
He was not only happy to talk about this extremely rare print, he even took it out of its frame and allowed us to touch it. If it was mine, I wouldn't let anybody else even look at it.
To describe Rob as passionate about his subject is really an understatement, and it is no surprise that having gone from start-up to where he is now as an art dealer has taken just 14 years. The collection he casually offers to buyers is superb, and he knows the story behind every single print.
This particular print has stood the test of time well, but has undergone some slight restoration on one corner, but I certainly couldn't see it. Therefore it is for sale at what is a very reasonable price for a Bosch print of that era - €25,000.
