Netherlands to Host The European Fine Art Fair in March

February 2, 2011 By: Melanie Gretchen

TEFAFArt enthusiasts may want to consider The Netherlands next month as collectors and museum curators alike descend on the city of Maastricht for The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), March 18-27, during which 30,000 works of art spanning 7,000 years will go on sale. Attended by 260 exhibitors from 16 countries, the art and antiques annual fair will feature nine sections including modern art, Old Master paintings, drawings and Asian art, alongside silver, antiquities, furniture and modern design.

Highlights of the event this year will include the exhibit by Hammer Galleries of New York, featuring Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting of his son Claude, as part of a show of 20 of the artist's works. Also on display will be a 7,000-year-old Greek idol discovered by Rupert Wace Ancient Art, in London, and rare prints personally selected by General Director Wim Pijbese of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, as part of a special exhibit.

Beginning in 1975 as The Pictura Fine Art Fair, the event became the TEFAF and re-located to the Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre (MECC) in 1988. In addition to the recognition for the items available for sale, the fair has been distinguished for its exhibitions, ground-breaking initiatives and music and lecture programmes. Currently, 29 teams of 170 international experts appraise the exhibitors' wares to continue the fair's tradition.
