Nies Oriental Art has taken part in TEFAF Maastricht for 35 years. The gallery has supplied significant works of art to important private collections and museums, including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the museum for Ostaziatische Kunst Cologne, the Victoria and Albert Museum London, the Rietberg Museum Zurich, the Metropolitan Museum New York, the Asian Art Museum San Francisco, the Barbier-Mueller Museum Dallas, the Asian Civilization Museum Singapore, and the Royal Ontario Museum Toronto.

The gallery focusses on sculpture, but also exhibits paintings and ritual objects from as early as the 5th century BC. Our team concentrates on thorough research of the artworks and their history. Nies Oriental Art deals in rare objects of the finest quality with excellent condition, extensive provenance, and authenticity guaranteed.
