I am a Dutch art historian, author and publisher. After completing my PhD at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, I spent thirteen years working for auction houses in London and Amsterdam. Since 2012, I work as publisher and agent.
My own books, such as the series Secrets of Van Gogh, have been written without the usual art history jargon. Anybody with an interest in art should be able to enjoy and fully comprehend them. The books deal with various aspects of the artist's life and work: Van Gogh's Inner Struggle, Van Gogh and Money, Van Gogh in Love. Most of the volumes are available in English, French, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.
I published the series Amsterdam Museum Books for tourists and visitors who want to get the most out of their trip to Amsterdam. The series includes Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Hermitage Amsterdam.
