AMSTERDAM MUSEUM SHOWS REPAIRED GROUP PORTRAITS
17th-century Dutch paintings have long been a prominent feature at TEFAF Maastricht because of the Dutch roots and the heritage of the Fair. Civil Guard, governor and group portraits are rarely seen on the market. An impressive collection of such portraits will be on view at TEFAF Maastricht 2018 in the Amsterdam Museum’s Loan Exhibition. In the past twenty years, the Amsterdam Museum has restored many of the group portraits in its collection. The impressive results, or at least some of them, can be seen at this year’s Maastricht.
Bartholomeus van der Helst
One of the masterpieces to see is the recently restored group portrait of The officers of the archers’ guild, painted by Bartholomeus van der Helst in 1653. This 17th – century painting has pieces of 16th – century silver – and the silverware on the picture has been preserved, the work is unique. The depicted paintings and silver objects can be seen together at T.F
Curators will finalize the restoration of the painting at the fair (on the afternoon of Thursday 15 th of March and the morning of Friday 16 th of March).
TEFAF is looking forward to welcoming more than 280 dealers to Maastricht, spread over the nine sections of the exhibition – Antiques, Ancient Art, Design, La Haute Joaillerie, Modern, Paintings, Paper, Showcase and Tribal.
The complete list of exhibitors is available here and a first look at what can be found at Maastricht is available here
