Prince Henrik was a passionate collector throughout his life. The Prince was particularly interested in masks and sculptures from Africa and jades from Asia. This coming August, the sale of the Prince's extensive collection will commence with a live auction at Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers. We are grateful that the Danish Royal House has chosen our auction house to convey the sale, and we look forward to presenting the collection to our Danish and international customers.
In this film, we invite you on a journey back in time to the place where the Polish artist Henri Hayden's cubist work "Bretonne" was created: Paris in the early 1900s. Here artists from all over the world met and numerous avant-garde art movements arose as a result.
At Bruun Rasmussen, we are quite proud of our new auction type, Direct Auction. With this type of auction, we have gone from focusing on exclusivity for the few to also offering quality for the many. At Direct Auction, you can buy and sell art, design and antiques with estimates as low as DKK 800.

The cubist work "Bretonne" by the Polish-born Parisian artist Henri Hayden will be a welcomed guest at this summer's Live Auction in Copenhagen.
