Meet the Maastricht movers and shakers

It’s the dealers who are in the frontline – fresh faced or regulars

As befits the world’s top art and antiques fair, TEFAF Maastricht attracts a wide range of dealers hoping to do good trade with the masses of visitors. Here, Frances Allitt, Laura Chesters and Anne Crane talk to the new faces, the fresh Showcase exhibitors and a ‘graduate’, the fair stalwarts and a returning dealer.

The newbie

Donald Ellis

Ellis is managing his anticipation as he makes his first foray into exhibiting at TEFAF Maastricht. He set up his New York business dealing in North American Indian works in 1976, focusing on the art of the Eskimo, north-west coast and eastern woodlands cultures.

He’s been a frequent visitor to the Maastricht fair in past years and holds with the view that it is the world’s “pre-eminent” art and antiques fair. It’s due to the current political situation in the US and Europe that Ellis says he finds it difficult to forecast sales and that he’s going into the fair with “modest expectations”.
