TEFAF 2013 Art Fair Maastricht, The Netherlands.

From the TEFAF Art Market Report 2013 : “Economic and political uncertainties have produced volatility in many asset markets with a flight to safe blue-chip stocks and low risk assets. A similar picture has emerged for art with the strongest performances recorded by well-known artists at the top end of the market.”

As every year, the opening of the biggest Art & Antique Show in the world, TEFAF in The Netherlands, it’s a spectacle of rich and famous get to gather. I’ve been privileged to go to all openings since they exposed in my hometown Maastricht. Getting back just on time for the opening i met some great friends I normally see in Geneva, New York, Hong Kong etc. The private jets are cue cueing at our little airport, hotels and restaurants are booming. The passion market is exploding by the many collectors from around the world, dealers, museum curators, private banks etc. It’s like Dubai & Hong Kong for 1 week in my, of god places, beloved Maastricht. Clearly hearing the private jets leave Maastricht again, i’m writing you this report! 😉
