TEFAF MAASTRICHT 2016
TEFAF Maastricht is widely recognised as the world’s leading art fair, annually attracting major collectors, both private and institutional, from around the globe. In order to satisfy an ever-changing and increasingly demanding market, TEFAF constantly monitors and raises its exacting standards and commitment to quality to engender the kind of excitement and anticipation that sets the international art world alight each March. TEFAF 2016 will take place from 11-20 March at the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre), Maastricht, The Netherlands.

(Collection Koenigs).
Helvoirt, 18 February 2016. The exhibition Collecting Collectors will take place in the TEFAF Paper section and will offer visitors a small but choice selection of master drawings and prints from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen which were acquired over the last 167 years. A particular highlight of the collection are the works by Fra Bartolommeo (1473-1517), numbering 400 sheets with 500 drawings assembled in two luxury albums by Florentine collector Niccolò Gabburri in 1729. One of the albums will be included in the selection at TEFAF Maastricht 2016, as a prelude to the forthcoming large Fra Bartolommeo exhibition in Rotterdam in the autumn of 2016.
The collection of prints and drawings is the largest subset of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s collection, containing around 17,000 drawings and 65,000 prints. It provides an overview of western art history from the Middle Ages until the present day. Included in the exhibition are works by old masters such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas van Leyden and Rembrandt van Rijn to modern and contemporary artists like Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Yayoi Kusama.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is named after two collectors who both were essential in the establishment of the museum’s international reputation – Frans Boijmans (1767-1847) and D.G. van Beuningen (1877-1955). Boijmans’ bequest founded the museum in 1849 and in 1940 Van Beuningen acquired and then donated the majority of the Franz Koenigs collection of master drawings. Other eminent collectors who contributed greatly to the collections were Dr. Adriaan Domela Nieuwenhuis (1850-1935) and Dr. Johan Bierens de Haan (1867-1951).

TEFAF 2016 EXHIBITOR LIST

'The Agriculture Lesson', Oil on canvas, 
66 x 55 cm, Circa 1797-1798 

TEFAF has long been selected as the platform of choice for dealers to present fresh- to-market and re-discovered works. Beck & Eggeling, Düsseldorf, will offer Dynamik Structure, 1957, one of the earliest works by German artist Heinz Mack (1931-present). This work has been acquired directly from the artist’s estate and will be offered for sale for the first time at TEFAF. Mack is well known for his contributions to op art, light art and kinetic art, and this work was created in the same year that the ZERO Movement, of which Mack was a founder member, was established.

German Expressionism has historically been well represented at TEFAF and the 2016 edition of the fair will see at least two exceptional examples on display. Nächtliche Phantasielandschaft, circa 1930-32, by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880-1938), which has been also been acquired directly from the artist’s estate and will be on display with Galerie Henze & Ketterer, Wichtrach/Bern. The nocturnal subject matter of the painting and the literal translation to ‘Nocturnal imaginary landscape’ gives the viewer an insight into Kirchner’s imagination. In addition, with strong use of night-blue and yellow, the work has a sense of melancholy. Alongside Kirchner, Galerie de la Béraudière, Geneva, will bring La Horde, 1927, by Max Ernst (1891-1976), which has been in a private collection since 1966. Ernst’s iconic style is in abundance in this work and it demonstrates eloquently how central he was to the Dada and Surrealist movements.

TEFAF is known for the annual showcase it provides for works of art from all periods, from earliest antiquity to the present day. One of the earliest objects within the 2016 Fair, is an Egyptian Lug-handled Jar with Flamingoes from the Predynastic Period, Naqada II, circa 3500-3300 B.C. Exhibited by Cahn International, Basel, this conically tapered jar has been crafted from clay and has three pierced lug handles on the shoulder, decorated on both sides with a group of nine stylised flamingoes.

Artist / Title; Jean Cassigneul (Paris, 1935), 
Apres-midi d’été, Oil on canvas,

TEFAF Design regularly wins plaudits for the quality of objects for sale as well as the standards of display. Galerie Dansk Møbelkunst, Paris/Copenhagen, will bring a pair of outstanding deck chairs by one of Denmark’s finest makers, Hans Wegner (1914-2007), whose inimitable style has subsequently been reproduced by many makers around the world. Wegner was one of the foremost Danish cabinet and furniture makers, who had considerable influence on the rise in popularity for mid-century Danish design.

Galerie Aveline, Paris, will bring an exceptional set of six carved and giltwood Régence armchairs (1715-1723), which are upholstered with tapestries, most probably from the Beauvais factory, one of the most revered workshops in France. The tapestries depict scenes from the Fables de la Fontaine, which comprised 239 fables of varying lengths and were in the main adapted from the classical fabulists Aesop, Babrius and Phaedrus.

TEFAF Maastricht
