Modern 20th -21st century
In order to appreciate old masters it is a privilege to familiarize ourselves with modern and contemporary art. This international discipline can be very subjective and is sometimes difficult to understand without any form of explanation. Especially the abstract character and secret messages can be hard to uncover. Personal taste of course is another measure to come to choices and conclusions. Two hundred years ago Douwes not only dealt with 19th century painters but at the time this could be seen as ‘contemporary art’ as well. And in line with our long-term views we are proud to offer you our selection of 20th and 21st century works of art.
