Rutger ten Broeke (1944)

This year, Dutch photographer Rutger ten Broeke, will celebrate his 80th birthday. He is represented by Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam. His work is not often found on the secondary market.

His biography:

Rutger ten Broeke was born on February 11, 1944 in Arnhem. He studied at college in Arnhem and at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. He is a key figure in the development of photography in The Netherlands. He started a commercial business, RTB Photography, while studying. In 1984, he organized the first photography Biennial in Enschede, The Netherlands. He worked for several fashion magazines and started the photography gallery, F32 in 1985.

Ten Broeke is internationally known for his classic black and white nudes. Central to his work is his fascination with the (female) body in nature and the emotional relationship between the two. Ten Broeke creates timeless and harmonious images with compositional perfection. His aesthetic concept combines beauty and purity with great technical skills.

Ten Broeke was a professor at the AKI (The Academy for Art and Industry) in Enschede and is active up until now as a free, creative art photographer. Since 2006 Rutger ten Broeke has a close relationship with the Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam. The Kahmann Gallery handles shows and purchases and is instrumental in the creation of his books and publications. The most important: the book: "40 Years", published in a limited edition, each with a hand-printed fibre based print. Modern prints by Rutger ten Broeke are for sale at Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam in the price range of € 2.000 - € 8.000 (link to galleryviewer here).

i-vintage currently has 3 vintage prints of Rutger ten Broeke for sale. Please have a look and consider the opportunity.

Gerrit Rietveld

The collection of Gerrit Rietveld objects has been expanded after the recent purchase of 2 vintage posters. One poster shows the drawn interior from 1925 of the famous Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht and was published in the 1970s by the French Editions du Désastre. The other poster is from 1984 and shows the famous Red and Blue Chair. Both posters are 60 x 80 cm in size and in rare excellent condition. A children's version of this Red and Blue Chair is also for sale in the collection, as is a Rietveld-inspired one-of-a-kind wooden sculpture. Read his complete biography here.

Buy via Etsy or eBay

Although this online store offers the same buyer's protection conditions, some clients prefer to buy and pay via trusted marketplaces like Etsy or eBay. If you prefer to buy our objects via these platforms, I will try to facilitate this as much as possible.

This webshop has the full range of our objects for sale, which cannot be guaranteed for Etsy and eBay. If you see something you'd like to buy from our store that's not on one of these platforms, please let me know.

Posters Nooitgedagt

A few months ago, journalist-writer Yteke de Jong published her book about the Nooitgedagt company.

After more than 150 years, business was closed in 2003. The company, based in the province of Frisia (Friesland) in the north of The Netherlands, was known as a producer of woodworking tools, ice skates and wooden children's toys.

After reviewing some of their marketing publications, I was surprised to see the beauty and simplicity in, for example, their posters. Have a look. Aren't they great?

The book can be ordered at at € 24.90. Vintage wooden toys are available under toys.

Happy owners at the launch of the webstore. Yeah!


Hi and welcome to i-vintage, my (biography) new online store for rare and authentic gifts.

As an avid collector and former gallery owner, I take pleasure in searching and acquiring interesting art and objects. Preferably rare objects, of which (still) few exist. The difficult part for me is to let go of my 'new darlings', but hey… then don't start a webstore.

The shop's slogan is 'Past Present(s)'. Presents to give to someone on a special occasion. Like an anniversary gift from a particular year or with a specific memory or history. Or a great item for your own interior decoration or (art) collection.
