Sandra mac duff

I recently noticed some kind of number/marking on the furthermost inside corner of my picture.Not far from the signature.. I am afraid to try to remove the frame to get a better look..what does that mean? but it has the same circular pinpont mark as is in the H of his signature..

Beautiful De Holesch Charcoal of 4 Horses
I have what appears to be a charcoal by De Holesch with four horses. It is one of my favorite works of stallions that i have ever seen. I searched through many of the works the artist has done but haven't seen this piece. I was hoping to find out more information on it.

Denes de Holesch
I own this and the shop it came from called it The Rehearsal. Has horses and a girl standing near in like a dancing dress. I wonder if they marked it wrong. It is signed by de Holesch. I would welcome any info on this. Thanks. Ella McNamara

reply to Ken Butterworth
Dear Ken,I detect a conflation of two problems here. First,is the artwork itself a signed Holesch? I recommend
comparison with reproductions like "Signature Examples" above. Second,is your painting materially an original? Since my father both produced and sold many paintings, they are liable to turn up in unlikely places and formats. The very ramshackle nature of your painting suggests that it could well be an original. If in doubt
of course you should seek professional advice. Hope this helps, and
Best regards

Ken Butterworth

watercolor by denes de holesch
I bought at a consignment shop an 8 1/2" X 7 " watercolor of four white horses with a predominent ly blue back ground. I love the picture but think it muct have been cut down. I have not removed the back of picture but it is signed and it has denes de holesch printed on matting. the problem is the picture seems to be glues onto the mat.(back ground. Is this possibly an original or not?? would love corraspondance from you. thank you .

Reply to Sammie,
Dear Sammie, the value of the frame is irrelevant to that of the painting-if you don't like it chuck it!
If watercolour is signed, and signature looks authentic-check "signature examples" link on this page-it is very probably original. You might also compare the horses with those displayed
on the web.
By the way, recent Holesch auction results will soon be available on AskART.
Best regards, Hugo


Lovely watercolor of two throughobred horses with jockey's on them. Looking at at them from the rear. One has the legs in the air and the jockey in a blue and white striped silksthe other is what appears to be yellow with red polka dot silks. The colors are muted and it is signed in the lower right. It's a rather large watercolor. Anybody know if it would be an original Holesch (picture of it anywhere?)

Thank you for your help.

reply to message from karen 02/15/2008
Several Holesch horse paintings were printed on really good posters in the '60s and '70s and sold in the millions in the US and England. The one in your collection is probably one of these, rearranged by an art collector.
In Another Day in Paradise, a couple of Holesch prints can be seen on the wall, behind Melanie Griffith. I hope this is helpful.

Holesch painting
20 years ago I found a large picture of two horses signed Holesch. I loved it had no idea of the artist, I just loved the detail of the horses looking so wild and it was only £3.00!!
When I had it re framed I was quite suprised to see it lookes quite real! not like a print as what I thought of a print. It seems to be on an artists board and looked quite rough. There is no name just the signature Holesch in the left hand corner. It looks to be of charcoal or ink or watercolour, sorry I am not an artist!. It also has a smudgy look about it, can anyone give me any information if anything was done like this by Holesch. regards,


Holesch POPE,s Portrait
Interesting Holesch painting appeared.The
Portrait of John Paul the
2. was exhibited in Montreal in 1979.See La Presse Montreal,1979 Ápril. 05.Painter was versatile!

Denes de Holesch
As the son of the artist,
I am working on an inven-
tory of his paintings for a forthcoming book. If anyone has a de Holesch painting, or knows someone who does, and would care to email me some information, I'd
be most grateful.


Some More info
It was David Niven who purchased a painting of de Holesch horses for Grace Kelly as wedding present for her marriage to Prince Rainier.

Denes De Holesch
Recently I aquired an old lithograph print from the collector's guild of NY. Authinicated & stamped. It is called the COURTSHIP it is print # 263 of 275 hand signed by the artist Denes De Holesch. It is in really good condition. Does any body know about the value? and perhaps where I could purchase another print called the CHARGERS? Thank you
