Bob Scholte Fine Art: Dutch art dealer


My name is Bob Scholte, you may know me from the "Art Hunt" column in Tableau Fine Arts Magazine where I share a new art story every three months. During my Bachelor's degree in History and Art History and my Master's degree in Art, Market & Connoisseurship, I started as an art dealer on the hunt for undiscovered gems. One such discovery is the oil painting Femme assise (1929) by the French cubist and theoretician André Lhote, which is included in the official catalog raisonné, and which was widely covered in the Dutch media including De Volkskrant, radio and the talk show Eva Jinek.

Since then, many works of art have been added to this list, including a Dutch panoramic landscape by Anthonie Jansz. van der Croos (1606-1662), Portrait d'une fermière by Léon Augustin L'hermitte (1844-1925), Two Horses in a Thunderstorm by the British equestrian painter Thomas Woodward (1801-1852), two new monoprints by Jan Schoonhoven (1914-1994), and a very rare signed print by Jan Mankes Portrait of Annie Mankes-Zernike (1914).

The passion for art began at a young age. Even before I could walk, my mother took me to auctions and antique markets in Haarlem. It's not surprising that at the age of thirteen, I felt at home in this environment and started buying art objects. At first, I purchased these pieces to learn more about the techniques, materials, and art historical movements. Over time, my taste changed, and the quality of my collection increased. Part of this process involved letting go of some artworks. This is where the art trade came into play, which I officially started in February 2020.


As an art dealer, I focus on researching, collecting, and selling works of art mostly from the 19th to mid-20th centuries. I am mainly active in the market of Jan Mankes (1889-1920). I also act as a mediator between buyer and seller, help collectors expand their collections, and advise clients on buying and selling.
