Pick of the fair

Whether it’s an object saved for years or an item secured only yesterday, TEFAF will boast a wide range for sale


For a fair of the size and prestige of TEFAF Maastricht, everybody aims to bring their best pieces.

Sometimes these are recently acquired treasures, the result of an opportunity seized to acquire a great object. At other stands there are pieces that dealers have squirrelled away for years in order to research and uncover their full history.

Either way, participants offer the visitor an opportunity to peruse some of the best pieces on offer across the whole spectrum of the art market.

Here Anne Crane and Frances Allitt present ATG’s selection from TEFAF’s latest cornucopia.

The Dutch dealership Vanderven Oriental Art celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and is marking the occasion with a catalogue titled Figures, celebrating the human form in East Asian Art.

This has taken four years to assemble and will be launched at TEFAF Maastricht.
