Old Master and Modern Prints & Drawings


Den Otter Fine Art

Jonathan den Otter has more than 15 years of experience in the art world, with a particular focus on works on paper, and founded Den Otter Fine Art in 2021.

After studying History of Art in Leiden and Amsterdam, Jonathan joined the Prints department at Christie’s in London in 2014. Soon after, he became Specialist and Head of Sale in the Old Master Drawings Department. As such, Jonathan worked on the I.Q. van Regteren Altena sale (2014-2015), the largest collection of Dutch & Flemish drawings on the market in decades which sold for over 20 million euros, the Old Masters/New Scholars: Works of Art Sold to Benefit Rugby School (2018), which included Lucas van Leyden’s drawing of a young man which sold for over 13 million euros.

After 7 years at Christie’s, Jonathan moved back to his native Rotterdam where he founded Den Otter Fine Art in 2021. The gallery specializes in old master prints and drawings as well as 19th century, modern and contemporary works on paper and has a particularly strong focus on prints and drawings by Northern artists.

Since the gallery was founded, Jonathan has sold to various museums including the Rijksmuseum, Boijmans Van Beuningen, Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
