Description
Extant sales and financial records and photographs of the Duits, Ltd. Gallery in London for the period 1920-1979, providing provenance, sales history, and some expertise on art and antiques (including estates and collections) handled by the firm.
Background
The firm started as a general dealer in art and antiques in Dordrecht in 1836 before moving to Amsterdam in 1875. In 1920 Charles Duits opened a gallery in London where he was joined by his brother William Henry and both his son, Clifford and grandson Graham. After 1920 the Duits Gallery concentrated on old masters, with a special interest in Dutch and Flemish works, many originally handled in association with their Amsterdam gallery, which closed in 1938. The London gallery closed in 1985.
