  • TEFAF CLOSES EARLY AFTER VISITOR TESTS POSITIVE

    TEFAF, The European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht in the Netherlands closed on the evening of March 11 after a visitor tested positive for coronavirus. It had been scheduled to run to March 15. Many other fairs, such as Miart in Milan, are looking at postponement or rescheduling. In Ireland the National Antiques Fair due to be held in Limerick on March 21 and 22 is to be rescheduled to a future date.

    Nanne Dekking, Chairman of the board of trustees at TEFAF said: “Given
    the recent developments in the regions around Maastricht and increasing
    concerns, we no longer feel it is appropriate to continue as planned. We
    want to thank our exhibitors, visitors and staff for their trust and support
    in this unprecedented situation. The TEFAF community has always excelled
    in bringing the best art in the world to Maastricht, we are proud to have
    witnessed how professional and how united our TEFAF family stood during
    this fair and unprecedented circumstances.”
