Sale Notes:
Our present Photography auction 'Exhibitions by Vincent Mentzel' features over 200 unique exhibition copies of his most important photographs (1973-2011), superiorly printed on a large format. Vincent Mentzel (1945) was a staff photographer for the major Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad and is regarded as the best Dutch photojournalist. His photographs have been published in magazines such as Time, Life and Newsweek and newspapers like The New York Times. A large collection of his work as well as his archives were acquired by The Rijksmuseum and his photographs are included in many other museums and private and corporate collections around the world. The narrow perspective of his early photographs changed the face of Dutch photojournalism and throughout his career he has pushed the boundaries with unusual perspectives and striking portraits of great intimacy. Highly appreciated for his portraits of the powerful - royals, heads of state, dictators - and the successful - musicians, sportsmen, writers, artists - his camera didn't overlook ordinary people. He beautifully captured peasant life in China and Tibet, where he was one of the first to be allowed to enter (1973). He also photographed street scenes in other parts of the world, including the United States and Holland. An exhibition in 2011 drew more than a 100.000 visitors to a large survey of the work that made him 'the eye of Holland': it was through his eyes that the Dutch witnessed important national and international events, such as the Carnation Revolution in Portugal, the 'Thrilla in Manila', the fall of the Berlin Wall and many others. Mentzel won many awards, including the Silver Camera (Zilveren Camera) and World Press Photo. He was knighted by Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands in 2007.

The construction of a new metro line in Amsterdam in 1975 led to severe civil unrest. Because the metro tunnel was being constructed above ground, with the caissons only being sunk at the last stage, many houses in the historical Nieuwmarktbuurt had to be demolished. The local population felt betrayed by the supposedly socialist city council and protested. At the height of the riots there was even a foiled bomb plot by a right wing radical who tried to discredit the protesters. The city eventually decided to halt the construction of any further metro lines, and the word metro became something of a taboo until 1997.
