Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about The European Fine Art Foundation (TEFAF) and our annual TEFAF Fairs in Maastricht and New York City.

TEFAF will continue to adhere to the Dutch health and safety regulations at all times, and we will take every measure possible to provide a safe environment during our Fairs.


TEFAF stands for: The European Fine Art Foundation.

(Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic) TEFAF conducted two international art fairs each year: TEFAF Maastricht in March and TEFAF New York Spring in May.

While TEFAF Maastricht showcases art from a wide range of collecting categories and time periods, TEFAF New York is more narrowly defined by an art-historical time period. TEFAF New York focuses primarily on modern and contemporary art and design, with ethnographic and ancient art, photography, and jewelry also featured.

We look forward to welcoming you back to TEFAF Maastricht and TEFAF New York soon.
