For the more eclectic lovers of beauty in art (don’t come hunting for dreary, thesis-driven conceptual art, you won’t find any) nothing in the pop-up art-mall industry matches the eye-popping annual smorgasbord at TEFAF in the small Dutch town of Maastricht (March 13-22, 2015). It’s different to the other fairs in that those who attend are not rushing around in a fevered state with lists of art to snag. This is a place where the daily fare ranges from ancient artifacts from thousands of years ago and everything else leading up to a respectable showing of modernism and contemporary art. Our survey comes a little late, our apologies, but it is worth the wait for the excellent ceramics from then and now that we have culled from the many hundreds that were on offer.
