Now held three times a year on two continents, TEFAF is widely regarded as the world’s leading fair for art, antiques, and design. TEFAF gives international dealers the platform to present museum-quality works of all eras and genres to a broad base of collectors and connoisseurs. In addition to its annual TEFAF Maastricht fair in March at MECC (Maastricht Exhibition & Congress Center) in The Netherlands, TEFAF has expanded to the United States from October 2016. It presents two new fairs TEFAF New York Fall and TEFAF New York Spring, held in October and May respectively in the heart of today’s art world, New York City.
TEFAF champions the finest art from across the ages. It brings together a network of top international dealers, who – through a combination of expertise and accessibility – inspire lovers of art from around the world.
Founded by art dealers in 1988 and run as a non-profit foundation, TEFAF has a proud history of showcasing masterpieces in every category of art and design – from antiques, Old Masters and Haute Joaillerie to contemporary painting works on paper and 20th-century design. TEFAF Maastricht 2017 featured 275 of the world’s top galleries and welcomed 71,000 visitors from more than 60 countries.
TEFAF is unrivaled in the rigor with which it checks the quality, authenticity, and condition of the works of art on sale at its fairs. Using the latest technical equipment, its vetting committee scrutinizes every item to be presented, so buyers can feel entirely confident that any object offered to them at TEFAF has passed through the hands and under the eyes of leading international experts.
TEFAF also publishes an annual TEFAF Art Market Report, which provides a global perspective on economic trends in the art market. Published since 2000, it uses data from auctioneers, dealers, collectors, industry observers and art sales databases to produce what is the most comprehensive summary of its kind available.
