Dear diary: countdown to Maastricht

Lifting the lid on what it takes to be an exhibitor at a TEFAF fair, ATG asked three dealers – American, British and German – to chart their preparations, concerns and hopes as they head to Maastricht for the 2018 event.

Exhibitors’ chronicle

“I’m panicking a bit. I’m going sailing and half of our pictures aren’t back from the restorers” Rupert Maas


The Maas Gallery is based in London and deals in Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite, Romantic and Modern British pictures and sculpture. It was founded in 1960 by Jeremy Maas and since 1993 has been run by his son Rupert, a specialist on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. The gallery has been showing at TEFAF for seven years.

A double self-portrait by Madeline Green to be shown at TEFAF by the Maas Gallery.

NOVEMBER 30, 2017:

TEFAF’s stand-building contractors Stabilo were in town and I had an appointment with them at the Cavendish Hotel. It was important to meet them because TEFAF has unilaterally decided to move us, to a corner stand opposite the bar. They do that without consultation, because they “would never get anything done otherwise”.

I’m hoping that will be a good thing, that we’ll see more people, although a corner stand has fewer walls, and you don’t want to hang too many pictures because your stand will look too busy. We learnt that at our first TEFAF.

People go to TEFAF for punchy and important works. We’re taking a double self-portrait by Madeline Green (1884-1947), a British painter in the 1920s and ’30s. She spent much of her life hermetically sealed in Ealing, just doing her own thing, a bit like Stanley Spencer in Cookham.
