Van Gogh in Maastricht

Next week is going to be an exciting one. Maastricht hosts both the annual Art Markets Symposium and Tefaf, one of the world's most important art fairs. One of the highlights of Tefaf is this painting by Van Gogh, 'L'enfant à l'orange'. Expect to pay more than 30 million USD.

Weak dollar, record sales... Sotheby's in London.

“The global hunger for great works of art is here to stay,” said auctioneer Tobias Meyer after the evening’s heady sale. “It’s become a 20th century masterpiece market.”
