  6. Highlights from TEFAF

    The European Fine Art Fair, renowned for its commitment to excellence, expertise, and elegance, will entice with a fabulous array of art, antiques, and design pieces this year. 

    More than 260 of the world’s finest art, antiques, and design dealers will bring the very best of the best to the 2013 edition of TEFAF Maastricht, which will take place from March 5 to 24, 2013. 

    We are particularly looking forward to masterpieces from the Van Gogh Museum, which are to be loaned to TEFAF Maastricht for a special exhibition during the fair! This is a delight, since the Van Gogh Museum rarely exhibits works from its collection of drawings by Vincent van Gogh, because they are so fragile.  

    Flip through our album to preview some of the highlights from TEFAF Maastricht 2013.
