It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Evert Douwes Sr, Founding Father of The European Fine Art Foundation. TEFAF would not be where it is today without the vision, commitment, and passion of Evert Douwes, and the organisation is extremely grateful for all that he did as a Founding Father and participant at the Fair. Evert will be greatly missed by our community and his name will be for ever linked with TEFAF.
