Exhibitors at TEFAF New York Fall 2016 have been extremely positive about the event. The light and airy atmosphere was much appreciated by attendees of the historic building that is the Park Avenue Armoury. It was completely transformed by Dutch designer Tom Postma especially for the fair, which runs until tomorrow. The 94 world-class specialist dealers from 14 countries, showing museum-quality fine art and antiques, delivered the total “TEFAF experience.”
Hicham Aboutaam of Phoenix Ancient Art, who presented a remarkable “Park Avenue Pantheon,” said: “The VIP preview day was spectacularly crowded. There were many new faces along with well-known international collectors and an impressive number of people from the museum world, all with their eye on their next acquisition. We are extremely happy with TEFAF and their celebration of the Armory.”
Jorge Welsh Fine Art of Kensington Church Street, London – exhibiting in New York for the first time in ten years – have put together a group of Chinese export porcelain pieces, resulting from the cultural encounter between West and East in the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Their stand is illustrated here.
