A Namibian journey through time

Art enthusiasts had the opportunity to acquire new, exquisite art pieces from the Fine Art Gallery in Swakopmund, where 100 pieces were exhibited and auctioned on Friday, 3 January.

A myriad artists participated, with Nico Roos providing the most lucrative painting. However, the N$30 000 paid for Roos’ 135 cm x 196 cm semi-abstract oil on canvas painting, was still under the expected price of N$50 000.

The painting, like many others in the auction line-up, depicts a typical Namibian landscape. “The exercise is a visual journey through Namibia and time,” said gallery owner Martina von Wentzel.
The auction was a journey through time, with paintings dating from 1917 featuring.

Hans-Anton Aschenborn’s two pieces depicting Namibian wildlife in nature went unsold – something that surprised Von Wentzel. “It’s surprising because we have received higher offers for the bids we set.”

Both pieces, created using ink, were priced at N$7 000.

Von Wentzel expects that Adolph Jentsch, an artist from the 1900’s, might be overtaken by Johannes Blatt. “He’s the one artist collector’s should start collecting. I think many are already collecting his works. He will be traded at a higher value than Jentsch,” she predicts.

Blatt had one lithography piece on auction dating from 1972.
