Nicolaas Teeuwisse OHG, founded in 2004, has its premises in a historical town villa in the residential suburb of Grunewald, close to Berlin’s famous Kurfürstendamm. The company specializes in works on paper, prints and drawings from the 16th to the early 20th centuries; its collection is focused on uncommon Old Master prints and European drawings of museum quality and art historical relevance. We sell works of art to major international museums and private collectors and occasionally also trade oil sketches and paintings from the above periods.

Our carefully edited and lavishly illustrated catalogues aspire to the highest standards of scholarship and research.
