Rembrandt on chain - V-ID collaboration with Douwes Fine Art and CMS

History in the making! Douwes Fine Art is proud to present a groundbreaking project that we have been working on together with V-ID and CMS Nederland: For the first time, V-ID's validation platform, known for securing digital files against manipulation, extended its activities into the physical world, by validating Rembrandts' "Virgin and Child in the clouds" with the help of multiple Blockchains.

Together with V-ID we developed a method to secure every detail of the artwork as well as its expertise - through video, macro-photography and traditional expert knowledge - on to the blockchain. We then issued a digital certificate of the work. In collaboration with CMS law and their Notary we were able to confirm the authenticity of this digital certificate and secure the files on multiple blockchains using V-ID's validation platform! An important step in combatting art fraud and protecting our heritage

We are very thankful for the great collaboration with V-ID (Marnix van den Berg, Pim Voets, Joshua Jenster) and CMS Law (Femke Stroucken). Check out the project in the video below!

'Het is verrassend wat er bij de restauratie tevoorschijn komt'

Openbare restauratie schilderij ‘Gezicht op de ruïnes van Palmyra’ in het Allard Pierson!

Erick Douwes, hoofd van de restauratie afdeling van Douwes Fine Art, zal de komende weken 'live' restaureren in het Allard Pierson Museum. Het oudste schilderij van de Syrische stad Palmyra was dringend toe aan restauratie. Het ruim vier meter brede panorama laat zien hoe Palmyra er in 1691 uitzag en is een belangrijk werk van Gerard Hofsted van Essen die in datzelfde jaar naar de ruïnes afreisde om deze vast te leggen.

Iedereen is welkom om een bezoek te brengen aan het restauratieatelier in het museum (Oude Turfmarkt 129 in Amsterdam) waar gewerkt wordt aan de restauratie.
Erick is de volgende data aanwezig: 20 maart, 22 maart, 29 maart, 3 april, 9 april, 16 april, 23 april en 1 mei (tijdens openingstijden).

Als de restaurator niet aan het werk is ben je natuurlijk ook van harte welkom om te zien hoe de restauratie vordert.

A wonderful article in the February edition of Collect art magazine about Rembrandt van Rijn and his etchings. A special tribute as it is 350 years since the great master Rembrandt passed away. The article includes a beautifully written interview with the 7th generation owner of Douwes Fine Art, Mr. Evert J.M. Douwes. A worthwhile read, unfortunately only available in Dutch though ;)

Mooi artikel in Collect Magazine februari editie over Rembrandt van Rijn en zijn etsen speciaal voor het Rembrandt jaar. Inclusief een uitgebreid interview met Evert J.M. Douwes de 7de generatie en director van onze kunsthandel Douwes Fine Art! De moeite waard om te lezen! :)

We would like to thank all visitors, colleagues and (of course) the organization for yet another magnificent fair. We very much look forward to seeing you all again soon!

This year TEFAF celebrates its 25th anniversary and dealers at TEFAF pulled out all the stops to put on a magnificent display of works of art. Their optimism was vindicated, despite the difficult economic backdrop. Sales were strong from the moment TEFAF opened its doors at the preview on Thursday March 15th and continued throughout the rest of the Fair. In 2013 TEFAF Maastricht will take place from 15-24 March.

Evert Douwes Jr. speaks in Nieuwsuur (@ 1:16), a Dutch news program, about the benefits of investing in fine arts during these times of financial uncertainty. This is a strong developping trend amongst art collectors, who seize this opportunity to combine 'business & pleasure'.

De Miljonair Fair bestaat tien jaar. En dus is het 5-daagse event dit jaar nog groter en duurder. Voelen de rijken de crisis niet?

TEFAF

As one of the co-founders of TEFAF our beloved father, Mr. Douwes Sr., gets to meet her majesty and shake her hand. Just near the end of this video. How lovely :-)

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands visited TEFAF Maastricht today (Wednesday 14 March) as the world’s finest art and antiques fair prepares to celebrate its Silver Jubilee. Her Majesty arrived for a visit to The European Fine Art Fair at the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre) in the southern Netherlands the day before it opens its doors for a private view. TEFAF was founded 25 years ago and has grown from a relatively small event to a fair where 265 dealers from 19 countries exhibit an extraordinary range of magnificent art and antiques.

Here we can demonstrate a good example of our excellent restoration skills. This is a 19th century panel by E.P. Mirani (Dutch 1810-1881). You can clearly see that the varnish on the righter half on this painting has been restored.

Paulus Moreelse
(1571 - Utrecht - 1638)
"Portrait of a lady holding a watch"
On canvas: 112 x 86,5 cm
Signed and dated with monogram 'PM 1636' (l.m.)

The Utrecht painter and architect Paulus Moreelse was trained by Michiel Jansz van Mierevelt from 1596 to 1598. Afterwards, he stayed in Italy until 1602. He portrayed many aristocrats and dignitaries. In this noble and glimmering portrait an unknown young lady is portrayed in a lively manner. Her face is painted in very natural tones and she wears a stylish dark dress with a magnificent and elaborate collar and cuffs made of Italian linen. The watch in her hand probably suggests the passage of time, a Vanitas symbol. She wears precious jewellery with pearls: an elegant tiara, a choker necklace and two threefold bracelets.
