Guus Roell’s annual open house takes place in a townhouse in the old centre of the Dutch city. There he and guest exhibitors present a selling exhibition of furniture, works of art and Kunstkammer objects.

This year for the fourth time Alvaro Roquette and Pedro Aguiar Branco of the Lisbon gallery AR-PAB exhibited a selection of objects on one of the upper floors of the gallery.

Among their sales during the show was a 17th century Mughal ivory inlaid Indo-Portugese cabinet which was offered at €35,000.

The gallery also plays host to Roell’s exclusive collector dinners, where collectors, exhibitors, art lovers and locals gather to enjoy a fine meal served on the gallery’s elegant dining table. When ATG attended this year, talk among the Dutch guests was all about the recently concluded national elections, and attendees were treated to flutes of champagne and live cello music before the meal.

The event is set to be a feast for the senses for years to come.
