In 2021 it will be 210 years ago that Venduehuis officially started as an auction house in The Hague. In all those years of auctioning, many works of art that have come under the hammer have been given a place in important national and international collections and museums, either permanently or on the basis of long-term loan. One of the most beautiful female portraits in art history is Johannes Vermeer’s ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’. This world-famous painting, now in the collection of the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, is one of the pearls that was auctioned at our auction house in 1881. The Venduehuis is located in the former mayor’s residence on Nobelstraat.

The exhibition "Face" provides an overview of the work of the Chinese artist Zhang Shujian of the past ten years. Since his graduation from the prestigious Central Acadamy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Zhang has developed a fascination for the human face and all its odd features. His merciless portraits present a unique point of view on the social fabric of contemporary Chinese society. Zhang Shujian (Hunan, 1987) lives and workes in Beijing.
