« TEFAF Maastricht is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012! Visitors will be greeted by a spectacular new entrance hall designed specially for the Fair’s Silver Jubilee containing a stunning light installation. There will be a number of initiatives celebrating an extraordinary 25 years which have seen TEFAF transformed from a relatively small-scale event into the world’s most important art and antiques fair attracting collectors, curators and connoisseurs from more than 50 countries. Candidates selected for TEFAF Showcase 2012 Six galleries have been selected to take part in TEFAF Showcase, which gives younger dealers a one-off opportunity to exhibit at TEFAF Maastricht. “As the years progress, we find that the level of applicants is getting higher as people have realised that they need to be of a certain standard to be considered,” says Ben Janssens, Chairman of the Executive Committee of TEFAF. “Showcase is now an established feature of the Fair and many visitors head straight for that section because they know that there are new dealers there”. (…)Christophe de Quénetain (Paris) Established in 2001, Christophe de Quénetain specializes in 17th, 18th and 19th century furniture and objects d’art. The gallery’s expertise also covers Old Master paintings and drawings from the same period. »
