SOLD - TEFAF Maastricht 2016

First time in Maastricht at TEFAF I was so convinced that I booked for next year already.

What is TEFAF – from their website:

“TEFAF is universally regarded as the world’s leading art fair, setting the standard for excellence in the art market. The fair is truly an unmissable event by collectors and museum representatives.

Presenting 275 of the world’s leading galleries from 20 countries, TEFAF Maastricht is a continuously evolving showcase for the best works of art currently on the market. Alongside the traditional areas of Old Master Paintings and antique Works of Art, at TEFAF Maastricht you can see and buy a wide variety of Classical Modern and Contemporary Art, Photographs, Jewellery, Twentieth Century Design and Works on Paper.”

I can truly underline that. It was amazing to see the quality, the expertised visitors and the well selected and approved art. But if you want to buy art you have to be early, many of the delicate pieces have been sold on the first day. But there still remain some from affordable up to a value of a few million euros. Even if your wallet just can afford the entrance fee you should go and dive into the art world and see some of the most wonderful masterpieces.

TEFAF also went social media and if you did not have time to visit, there is a very good chance to be introduced in the fair, its art and the experts that are there: TEFAF on Facebook.

Analog is possible too and if you sit in one of the delicate food stations at the fair there is always a chat with somebody about what you should not miss or what is of any interest within the world of art. 

Maastricht itself is worth a visit. I stayed at the Townhouse, that even has a shuttle service to and from the fair. It is right across the station and in walking distance from the old town centre. The whole town is in TEFAF mode. Everywhere you meet artists and expertised visitors that share there knowledge. The dutch kitchen is not very famous but like in

Maastricht there are places where international and local kitchen is well combined. Go to Flo or Harry’s and you are in the middle of hospitality. Fish, seafood and meat are on the menu, but do not leave out the deserts.

Well, it is no secret, but you have to take time to visit the bookstore in the church and enjoy a coffee in that unique atmosphere. Or you go to the Furniture & Café and stroll around and find the chair you always wanted.

Hope to see you there next year.
