4. Theo van Gogh (art dealer) – Theodorus Theo van Gogh was a Dutch art dealer. He was the brother of Vincent van Gogh, and Theos unfailing financial and emotional support allowed his brother to devote himself entirely to painting. Theo died at the age of 33, six months after his brother died at the age of 37, Theodorus Theo van Gogh was born on 1 May 1857 in the village Groot-Zundert in the province of North Brabant, Netherlands. He was the son of Theodorus van Gogh and Anna Cornelia Carbentus and his elder brother was Vincent van Gogh, who later became a famous painter. Theo worked for years at the Dutch office of the Parisian art dealers Goupil & Cie in The Hague. Theo joined the Brussels office on 1 January 1873 as their youngest employee, after Theo was transferred to the London office, he moved to the office in The Hague, where he developed into a successful art dealer.

Weak and unable to come to terms with Vincents absence, he died six months later at age 33 in Den Dolder, Theo admired his elder brother Vincent for his whole life. But communicating with him proved to be difficult, even before Vincent opted to follow his artistic vocation, the communication between both brothers suffered from diverging definitions of standards, and it was evidently Theo who kept on writing letters. Therefore, mostly Vincents answers survived and few of Theos, Theo was often concerned about Vincents mental condition and he was amongst the few who understood his brother. It is known that Theo helped Vincent to maintain his artist lifestyle by giving him money and he also helped Vincent pursue his life as an artist through his unwavering emotional support and love. The majority of Theo’s letters and communications with Vincent are filled with praise, Vincent would send Theo sketches and ideas for paintings, along with accounts of his day to day experiences, to the delight and eager attention of Theo. Theo was instrumental in the popularity of Impressionist artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas by persuading his employers, Goupil & Cie, to exhibit and buy their works. In 1886, Theo invited Vincent to come and live with him in Paris, the two brothers maintained an intensive correspondence, with Theo often encouraging his depressed brother. Theo was one of the few people who Vincent could talk to, over three-quarters of the more than 800 letters Vincent wrote during his life were to Theo, including his first and his last letters
5. Jacques Goudstikker – Between the two World Wars, Jacques Goudstikker was probably the most important Dutch dealer of Old Master paintings, according to Peter C. Sutton, executive director and CEO of the Bruce Museum of Arts, the Dutch government restored the paintings to the Goudstikker family in 2006, and they were sold at auction in 2007 for almost $10 million. Goudstikker was born in Amsterdam, the son of an art dealer and he studied at the Commercial School in Amsterdam, and more intensely with Wilhelm Martin and William Vogelsang at Leiden and Utrecht. This was revolutionary in the Netherlands of the time, where in 1906, Adriaan Pit and this worship of our old school of painting, which started thirty years ago is still alive and appears not to let us appreciate any foreign art. Goudstikkers taste extended to the design of his catalogs, which were works of art in themselves. Goudstikker maintained close ties with art historians and collectors, T. J. Oakley Rhinelander and Mrs. Cortland S. Van Rensselaer. The stock market crash and Great Depression took their toll on the art trade. While escaping the Nazis in May,1940, Goudstikker fell in the hold of the SS Bodegraven in the English Channel, Goudstikkers main stock in trade were paintings by the Old Masters, he did not express much interest in Italian Baroque art or art of the 18th century. Artists in his collection included Jan Steen, Adriaen van Ostade, Isaac van Ostade and he kept several notable paintings by Jan van der Heyden at Nijenrode Castle, one of his two country homes where he also entertained clients and exhibited great art. The Collection comprises about 1113 works of art and 87 of them were sold for $20.78 Millions. Through a series of sham transactions later found illegal, Miedl acquired title to the J. Goudstikker trade name, what little art remained in the collection, and Goudstikkers real estate. With the asset of Goudstikkers internationally renowned trade name, Miedl went on to make a fortune marketing art internationally, particularly to Nazi Germany. At that time, Goudstikkers heirs sued for possession of these works, on the recommendations of the Herkomst Gezocht Committee chaired by R. E. O. Jacques Goudstikkers notebook at the Amsterdam City Archives, containing records of the works of art in his possession
