News In Brief

Cologne Asian sale moves to Brussels

A month after its Stuttgart competitor Nagel said it would be holding Asian art sales outside Germany, Cologne auction house Lempertz has followed suit.

The decision to move auctions to Brussels has been made in light of Germany’s cultural heritage bill (Kulturschutzgesetz), which came into force last August. Among its most outspoken critics was Henrik Hanstein, owner of Lempertz.

While Nagel is holding its sales in Salzburg, the move is not such a logistical upheaval for Lempertz.

The company has been represented in Brussels since 1985 and has held yearly sales of African and Oceanic art there since 1992.

Three years ago it opened its new premises in the Rue du Grand Cerf in the heart of the city, where the first Asian auction will be held on June 15, four days after Cultures – The World Arts Fair closes its doors in the Belgian capital.
