Friday - The European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht

I first read about this event a couple of years ago, on my boss' discarded Antique Gazette.

It starts today and ends on the 24 March and apparently is one of the most important art fairs in the world: it hosts 260 galleries from 20 countries, covering Old Masters, Modern and Contemporary art.

The main "special event" of this year is a parallel exhibition of Van Gogh's drawings, on loan from the eponymous Amsterdam's museum and there are several other cultural activities connected to the Fair.

On display: paintings, photography, jewellery, 20th Century design and works on paper, most of it on sale, and with entry tickets starting at 55 Euro, it better be good.

Beware: from the interviews I saw yesterday on TV, plenty of poshos on the premises!
