Already active in the world of antiques since the age of 14, Cees Lodder built up an exciting career. Soon after his interest started, he focussed on Chinese antiques. He studied the
Chinese language in the eighties, which knowledge became indispensable for the rest of his career in the Chinese antiques scene. Because of the advantage of speaking Chinese, it was more easy to
work and meet with well known dealers and collectors all over the world and in particular China.
His first Chinese Art gallery was located in the city of Dordrecht in The Netherlands, but in 2002 he decided to make a move to Beijing to open a gallery in the "Beijing Gu Wan Cheng"
building. At that time China was an upcoming market and Cees became the first official foreign art dealer in Beijing. In 2007 moved back to the Netherlands and soon after opened a gallery In
In January 2019 he decided to stop with the gallery and start as a Chinese Art consultant. Specialized in ceramics , works of art and in particular scholar objects he is helping collectors to
find objects and advising new collectors in the field of Chinese antiques.
