ART FAIR

TEFAF: a ritual art gathering

n Maastricht, the peaceful capital of the Dutch province of Limbourg, those profitable meetings between international
gallery owners, keen collectors and directors of leading museums will soon be starting up again: a feverish ballet timed to the last minute, which should not be too disrupted by the creation of two New York versions of the event, even if they are sure to be a hot topic of conversation. In October last year, the first of these fairs, devoted to the fine and decorative arts from Antiquity to the 20th century, moved into the historic building of the Park Avenue Armory, while the second, focused on the modern and contemporary period, will be taking place between 4 and 8 May this year. TEFAF New York managing director Michael Plummer explains the reasoning behind this:

"The US is famous for its vigorous market, and New York is generally considered its capital, its beating heart." On top of this was the desire to develop a showcase devoted to contemporary artists, better suited to a clientele that no longer travels to Maastricht... Meanwhile, the European event is still central to the sphere of art, with its loyal exhibitors: 270 this year, including 40 from France. Among them, Old Masters champions will of course be present, getting their finest pieces ready, like the remarkable "Virgin and Child with St John the Baptist and St Francis" by Jacques Stella enthroned at the stand of Didier Aaron & Cie. With Florence de Voldère, Abel Grimmer and one of his famous tondos, "August", look set to triumph. The De Jonckheere gallery will naturally be promoting Flanders, particularly landscapes by Jan and Pieter Brueghel. With Eric Coatalem, a royal effigy will look down upon us: that of Louis XIV, painted by Hyacinthe Rigaud, in a preparatory sketch for the famous official painting. A fairly symbolic representation of "what all buyers are
