Note: not all things I write here are favourites, just things I want to remember.

What is there to remember about Christies, Amsterdam? Not much to be honest, not even worth a picture. It’s outside of Amsterdam-centre, in a nice neighbourhood, close to the museum-quarter (of course). It’s burgundy flags welcome you from a distance and when you walk in, you are confronted with some art-work. The receptionists look like female flight-attendants. There’s art-brochures in the waiting-area and that’s about it.

I was met in a tiny office on the ground floor, in contrast to any majestic expectations you may have had. It’s important to remember that Christies is only a mediator and not a curator of art.
