As the fourth iteration of TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) New York Fall approaches, the Fair reveals a “first look” at a selection of works to be unveiled at the Park Avenue Armory, November 1–5, 2019. The event covers a staggering 7,000 years of art history.
Illustrating TEFAF New York’s breadth and depth will be pieces such as a George III Carved Giltwood Chimneypiece, 1760, attributed to Matthias Lock, in Giltwood and Marble at Ronald Phillips LTD / Stand 357, from Stedcombe House, Devon, England; Man with a Brush Cut by Karel Appel (Amsterdam, 1921 – Zurich, 2006), oil on burlap, at new exhibitor Galerie de la Béraudière / Stand 104; and a rare Pair of Japanese Six-Fold Screens with Cherry Trees and Chrysanthemums on a Gold Ground from the Hasegawa School in ink, color, gold leaf, paper, Momoyama period, 16th-17th Century at Gregg Baker / Stand 353.
TEFAF has been widely recognized for introducing new ways of looking at, thinking about, and experiencing art. Building on the success of the past three editions, the Fair reinforces the continued relevance of historic art in the current art market, bringing together an international community of the most discerning art collectors, curators, interior designers, and specialists. For the first time, the historic works which make up the core of TEFAF New York Fall will be complemented by works from modern and contemporary dealers in unique booth collaborations, set in select historic rooms of the Armory.
“We are proud to be working with a globally and stylistically diverse range of 90 specialist dealers,” says Sofie Scheerlinck, Managing Director of TEFAF New York. “The breadth of this Fair is even greater this year with the addition of some exciting new exhibitors, alongside an already eminent roster of specialists, all of whom represent the top of their fields in quality and taste. At each Fair we work to bring visitors a truly extraordinary experience at the Armory through outstanding programming, special exhibitions, installations, design, and events. This year is no exception.”
