Dr Lennart Booij
Lennart Booij Fine Art and Rare Items are dealers in artworks from distinguished artists from the first half of the 20th century. There is a strong focus at the oeuvre of René Lalique (1860-1945) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). We present glass items and original jewellery by René Lalique, lithographs, ceramics, aquatints and lino’s by Pablo Picasso and some rare vintage photos from the period 1900-1950. All these artists were front-runners in works of art done in small runs and editions. Therefore quite unique pieces are still traceable and affordable. We also hold a small stock of rare lightning objects, mainly designed by Jean Perzel (1892-1986) and period decorative items.
The Amsterdam based gallery exhibits a selection of items and artworks from our own stock. We act as agent for international private clients and public institutions. We provide research and expertise, valuations, and curatorial services. Dr. Lennart Booij (1970) holds a PHD in art history and wrote a book about the work of René Lalique, which can be ordered by mail. The gallery presents itself on PAN Antiques Fair each fall in Amsterdam.
