More news from The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), which will take place in the Netherlands next month: A major work by Pierre-Auguste Renoir from the pioneering early days of Impressionism is to be offered for sale for $15 million by international gallery Dickinson at TEFAF Maastricht, the world’s most influential art and antiques fair. Femme cueillant des fleurs (Woman picking flowers) depicts Camille Monet, the first wife of Renoir’s fellow Impressionist Claude Monet. It is being sold through Dickinson by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in the United States in order to strengthen other areas of its collection.
TEFAF will be held at the MECC (Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre) in Maastricht in the southern Netherlands from March 18-27, 2011.
