The 2024 edition of TEFAF
returns to the Maastricht MECC
from 7 to 14 March
Flavio Gianassi of FG Fine Art is delighted to announce his participation at Tefaf Maastricht, in the Showcase section (stand 902). He will present a selection of Italian old masters ranging from the 14th to the 16th century, thus covering three centuries of art history.
The oldest work, dating back to 1378, is composed of four panels depicting Saints Simon, Rainerius, Ambrose and Peter who, together with the Madonna and Child now in the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, formed the altarpiece of San Ranieri for the church of Saint Francis in Pisa, commissioned by the testamentary wishes of Raniero Sancasciani, a Pisan banker, who in 1348 left four hundred Pisan lire, an extremely high amount for the time, for the creation of the polypthyc.
Among the various works presented, a small predella stands out for its interest. Made by Cenni di Francesco di Ser Cenni, an Italian Gothic painter active in Florence between 1369/1370 and 1415, depicts Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata. This small panel, originating from an unidentified polyptych, constitutes one of the sections belonging to the same predella along with three other scenes: the Beheading of the Baptist, in an unknow location, the Martyrdom of Saint Lawrence and the Temptation of Saint Anthony, now in Florence at the Museo Stibbert.
Widely regarded as the world’s premier fair for fine art, antiques, and design, TEFAF Maastricht brings together 7,000 years of art from ancient to contemporary, this year showcasing 270 of the finest dealers and galleries from 22 countries. The fair is unequalled in its standards and methods employed to showcase vetted works of supreme historical merit and quality to provide private and institutional collectors and visitors with an unparalleled collecting opportunity.
TEFAF sets itself apart in the thoroughness of its vetting and dedication to upholding a standard of excellence. As one of the main pillars of fair success and legacy, this creates the optimal environment for collectors to acquire the highest quality works of art.
