Beatrix drawings sold to Princess

Forty sketches and one watercolour painting made by queen Beatrix when she was a young girl have been sold at auction to Aad Ouborg, head of the kitchen equipment company Princess.

The painting, titled May Queen and signed by Trix, was sold for €5,500, the sketches for a similar amount. The pictures will be hung in the company’s head office in Breda.
An unknown buyer paid €2,600 for a crayon drawing of a smiling sun by the young Beatrix at the Christie’s auction in Amsterdam. The works were part of a private collection.
