The European Fine Art Fair

The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), in Maastricht, the Netherlands, is the largest such event (this year's fair, from March 10 to 18, will feature 197 dealers), and by most accounts the finest. Eighty percent of annual old-master sales are initiated here, but the fair has also deftly broadened to include 20th-century art, haute jewelry, and Asian artifacts, such as a pair of Tang dynasty terra-cotta Lokapalas, or guardian kings, from Vanderven & Vanderven Oriental Art.
