The launch of two annual New York fairs may have given TEFAF roots in another continent but the Maastricht fair remains the ‘mothership’ of the organisation. For most of the 270 dealers exhibiting, the event represents a crucial part of the financial year as they vie to attract collectors and institutions from across the world buy the best items they have to offer. The 30th edition of TEFAF Maastricht opens on March 10 (with an invitation-only preview on the day before) and runs until March 17. Here are 12 highlights from around the stands.
