In many ways, TEFAF Maastricht is the grand dame of art fairs: decorated, flamboyant, and indulgent. Not unlike her younger sister, TEFAF New York, which opens at the Park Avenue Armory every May, the original Dutch affair is known for bridging art of all periods with decorative objects and furniture from then and now. The 36th edition of the fair, better known as the European Fine Art Foundation, concluded last month at its usual massive venue, MECC, in the modest-sized Dutch town where banners commemorating the fair’s return decorated shops and bars.

The 36th edition of the celebrated Dutch fair made a comeback this March after last summer’s smaller edition, while Salone prepares for its 61st edition in Milan later this month.
