TEFAF Maastricht (13 - 22 March 2014) is still regarded as the world’s leading art fair and attended by collectors and curators alike. It presents 260 of the world’s leading galleries, from more than 20 countries, and showcases a breadth of works of art currently on the market. At last year's fair we saw strong interest in Old Master Paintings in particular.
TEFAF is unequalled in its level of quality and in the methods it employs to guarantee the authenticity of every painting and object on offer. Participating dealers are admitted only after a strict selection process and TEFAF’s vetting system involves no fewer than 175 international experts in 29 different categories, who examine every work of art in the Fair for quality, authenticity and condition.
