TEFAF sets an example for Europe!

March 2010 - TEFAF Maastricht 2010 has started and will be open until Sunday 21 March.

TEFAF sets an example for Europe

TEFAF 2010 "TEFAF Maastricht has set an example that the rest of Europe should follow", said Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission, during a visit to what she called "the world's leading art and antiques fair".
"TEFAF adapts to its circumstances: adding new sections, changing focus, refusing to be complacent. TEFAF has decided: 'The world is changing, so we are changing too'." Ms Kroes praised the Fair on 12 March, the day after a record 10,500 people attended the private view. TEFAF Maastricht continues until Sunday 21 March. More information

Museum purchases

TEFAF 2010 Dealers reported strong sales to private collectors and museums. The National Gallery of Art in Washington bought the newly discovered Winter Landscape with Skaters painted by Adam van Breen in 1611 from John Mitchell Fine Paintings (London) for €910,000. Antiquities dealer Rupert Wace Ancient Art (London) sold a Roman bronze statuette of Aphrodite wearing a silver diadem to a French private museum. Other purchases included two pieces bought by German and American institutions from Julius Böhler (Starnberg) and Renaissance cutlery, sold to an American museum by Kunstkammer Georg Laue (Munich).

Masterpieces at TEFAF

TEFAF 2010 Quality, rarity and provenance have become the hallmarks of TEFAF Maastricht. The Fair has an extraordinary range of important works on show. Highlights of the 23rd edition of TEFAF include a bed that once belonged to the great French diplomat Talleyrand, the Italian Expressionist Marino Marini's greatest picture, one of the last major paintings by Paul Gauguin and a key early work by Damien Hirst.
