The Antiques Trade Gazette reports on a new Old Master fair planned for Paris this Fall:
The fair, to be known as Paris-Tableav, will be held from November 4-8, a time preceeding Old Master auctions in Europe and one relatively free of other major fairs. The idea is to limit the event exclusively to Old Masters with a dateline of 1850 and to “put a little bit of art back into the Parisian marketplace”. […]
[Bob] Haboldt and the other committee members – Didier Aaron & Bruno Desmarest; Maurizio Canesso; Eric Coatalem; Jean Francois Heim; Georges de Jonckheere; Jacques Leegenhoek; Giovanni Sarti; Bertrand Gautier & Bertrand Talabardon and Claude Vittet – will each invite a guest participant from outside France, bringing the total number of exhibitors to 20.
