We would like to introduce you to Ger Stallenberg, Auctionata expert in Art Deco and Art Nouveau.
For Ger Stallenberg, the son of an artist mother, the sense of beauty and art was instilled at an early age. Since his years at the Art Academy in the 1970's, he has loved the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. His creative work as an artist has always gone hand in hand with his quest for art and applied arts from this period.
In 1997 he opened the gallery “Het Ware Huis”, specializing in international Art Nouveau and Art Deco.
The unique feature of the applied arts from the period 1895 - 1940 is an innovative positive energy, a belief in beauty and progress. The spirit of modernity and the ideologies of the early twentieth century are for us today still very recognizable. At the same time, we feel the spiritual depth that many artists put into their designs.
Valuing pieces from this period feels like the rediscovery and reassessment of the still undervalued applied art from this period. Thanks to the steady growth of lovers and auction results, Mr Stallenberg believes in a golden future for Art Nouveau and Art Deco.
Ger Stallenberg lives and works in Lage Mierde, Netherlands.
