Bernard Descheemaeker - Works of Art
Insights From The Gallery
Regularly, I organize a sales exhibition on a specific theme. Those exhibitions, which take place in my Antwerp gallery, are all accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.
My current exhibition marks my 20th anniversary as an art dealer and it features a Selection of 30 objects from my current collection. For this exhibition and its accompanying catalogue (Ars Longa. 20 Years of Masterpieces from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance), I have selected 30 works of art, covering each of my specialisms at least once: Flemish late-medieval sculptures; champlevé enamels from the 12th and 13th centuries; Gothic ivory carvings; bronze objects; a relief in mother-of-pearl; Renaissance tapestries; Flemish 17th-century paintings and drawings; Antwerp ceramics; and 16th-century painted enamels from Limoges. Nevertheless, there exists unity in such diversity: each piece has been selected on the basis of its extraordinary quality, its extreme rarity, its art historical relevance and its excellent condition.
