The Brussels Art Fair (BRAFA) searches out and features top-level works of art and discoveries in multiple disciplines, crossing media, cultures, and even centuries. View paintings, drawings, sculptures, glassware, ceramics, and other artful objects from 134 art dealers and galleries now through February 4.

The BRAFA credo is “that of the highest possible quality,” reflected by galleries that are both historically represented and new to the show. The organization’s president, Harold t’Kint de Roodenbeke, says, “It’s really a great source of pride for BRAFA to be able to present such a panel, comprising so many galleries of international renown and such strong sections. I think the quality will never have been as high, and I am delighted at the prospect. We are looking forward with great anticipation to being able to open our doors to our visitors!”
