galerie VAN DEN BRUINHORST

Historic Design and Applied Arts.

description

The gallery was founded in 2015 by Aagje Voordouw and Ad van den Bruinhorst. Ad began working as a vintage design dealer in 1992. In the years hereafter, he focused on Dutch design from the interwar period.

Through archival research and restoring the objects in person he became an expert in this field. This expertise was valued by his customers, the avid collectors, but also came to the attention of museum curators, documentary makers, art historians and publishers. He was asked to perform in documentary films, to participate in museum exhibitions, to write articles for art magazines and to be a speaker at symposia.

Art fair PAN Amsterdam invited van den Bruinhorst to join their first design section in 2008, which he participated in ever since.
The collection often contains exclusive and remarkable items which have played an important role in the development of art and design within the interwar period. Through our gallery we hope to find them a new home in a beautiful interior, private collection or museum.

Our objects are regularly sought out by national and international museums. We recently delivered pieces from our collection to Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Museum of Fine Art in Houston, Texas, United States of America.
