TEFAF Maastricht is widely regarded as the world’s premier fair for fine art, antiques and design. Featuring over 275 prestigious dealers from some 20 countries, TEFAF Maastricht is a showcase for the finest art works currently on the market. Alongside the traditional areas of Old Master paintings, antiques, and classical antiquities that cover approximately half of the fair, you can also find modern and contemporary art, jewelry, 20th-century design and works on paper.
From the moment the fair first opened its doors in 1988 at the MECC in Maastricht, TEFAF has been dedicated to presenting the world’s finest art—across categories—under one roof. What began as a radical idea for a new fair model has transformed into “the greatest fair in the world,” according to one of TEFAF’s first exhibitors, Old Master dealer Johnny van Haeften.
A commitment to excellence, rigorous vetting standards, and an unparalleled collecting experience have remained constant in TEFAF’s journey to today.
