This splendid arrangement in the Jugendstil canalhouse in the heart of the Spiegelkwartier is a must for any true art lover. This gallery is represented in The Hague as well as in the capital of The Netherlands. Not only can you find works by a fixed group of Dutch artists in this gallery, but also a number of foreign painters and sculptors are exclusively represented. Names like Wim van Aken, Saad Ali and Rein Dool should be well-known among art critics. Apart from the temporary exhibitions, there is also a permanent collection of bronze sculptures. The KunstKoopregeling (art buying arrangement) allows you to pay for any work bought in this gallery over a period of months without having to pay extra interest.

  We bought an art poster, advertising an exhibit here. We loved the poster, and often buy them when we travel, because they remind us of our trip and all of the lovely times we have had after we arrive back home. Unfortunately, we lost the poster in transit, in the trunk of a taxi. I contacted the gallery from back home, and they were very rude, simply saying that they will not ship posters. They have tubes for their posters, and other art, and I am certain that most art is shipped via the same tube we bought with the poster. We are sure that they do this on a routine basis. So, why weren't they interested in selling an additional poster and making a visitor to their gallery happy, instead of giving such an unfeeling reply? If I were an artist represented by this gallery I'd have second thoughts about having such snobs represent me!...   Read More
