Kunsthandel Artist


159 Kerkstraat,

1017 GG.

Owned by antique dealer Hesdy Artist, this gallery sits just outside the historic Spiegelkwartier (Mirror Quarter), home to more than 70 fine art and antique shops. Attracting such former patrons as Jennifer Aniston and Harvey Fierstein, the gallery is stocked with mostly 18th- and 19th-century antiques, along with a smaller selection of pieces dating from the 1600’s. Artist specializes in Asian ceramics, although the ever-changing inventory may also include sculpture, silver, furniture, and art prints. In addition, the gallery showcases a number of replicas, such as 17th-century lithographs of old master paintings.
