What are you taking to TEFAF?
A Young Boy with his Horse, a fine example of the distinctive portraits by Dutch Golden Age painter Herman Doncker (c.1595-c.1656).
The subject of youths standing next to miniature horses is very rare but some examples are known to have been produced in the north-west of the Netherlands, particularly in the town of Enkhuizen to where Doncker moved in the 1630s.
The life-size oil on panel from 1646 is priced at €250,000. A portrait of Elizabeth Capel Countess of Carnarvon by Sir Peter Lely (1618-1680) will also be on the stand priced at €295,000.
Will TEFAF New York affect the Maastricht fair?
The launch of TEFAF New York will certainly have an effect; some American collectors will likely decide not to travel to Maastricht in favour of the domestic alternative, but we do believe that attendance will remain high.
