Works of Art
From the famous Rijksmuseum it’s only a short walk to our two galleries at Prinsengracht 821 and Nieuwe Spiegelstraat 68. At the sign of Bruil & Brandsma Works of Art, you will find a wide collection of museum quality art.
We, Rob Bruil and Marieke Brandsma, started the collection with Dutch folk art in the early 90’s. Over the years our interest broadened and our collection widened and became more diverse. In our gallery we offer antiques from the 14th to the 18th century, ranging from applied arts and artifacts to unique works of art. We focus mainly on objects that are unique and of high quality. We are always looking for special and rare objects.
At another location in Amsterdam we have a restoration studio where we preserve and/or restore objects of our own and those of collectors.
You are welcome in our shop if you are a collector or if you are just interested in artefacts, furniture and works of art history has left us with.
