The 175 pairs of eyes on Maastricht

As attribution issues continue to beset the art market, TEFAF’s vetters are placed under the spotlight as much as the objects they assess. Roland Arkell speaks to current chairman of vetting, Henk van Os


“WE are the TEFAF vetters. We receive no money – only travel expenses – but we are all about the works of art. For me and my colleagues, it is one of the most exciting days of the year.”

Henk van Os, Dutch art historian and a former director of the Rijksmuseum, has been chairman of vetting at TEFAF for a decade. A devoted Maastricht visitor for over 20 years, he has watched first hand the fair’s evolution from the smallscale Pictura show to its 89-dealer launch at the MECC in 1988.
