Leyster, the art dealing dog

I've been meaning to mention the wonderful children's books written by Peggy Stone, partner of the New York Old Master dealer Lawrence Steigrad, and a regular exhibitor at Tefaf in Maastricht. The stories are about a runaway husky who is found in New York, and named after the Dutch artist Judith Leyster. Two books have been published, with illustrations by Ena Hodzic, and the Deputy Editor has been enjoying them greatly. More here, and you can buy them here

Tefaf 2018

The great TEFAF fair opens in Maastricht this week. Exhibitors will now be putting the finishing touches to their stands, and preparing to undergo the nervous breakdown that is vetting. AHN wishes everyone taking part the best of luck; may you sell your entire inventory on the first day.

Above is a short video made by an exhibitor, Galerie Antoine Laurentin, which gives a brief preview of works they will be taking to the fair. I hope more exhibitors do this sort of thing in future; it's much more effective than sending out a press release.

That said, if anyone has anything exciting they'd like to share, send me some photos and I'll put it up. 

Cleaning Rembrandt, in public (ctd.)

I mentioned earlier this year a project at the MFA in Boston to clean a pair of Rembrandt portraits, in public. The project was funded by TEFAF, and above is their short film about the work.

Goodness, I've been away for an age - many apologies. I've been on the road filming the new series of Britain's Lost Masterpieces, and when not doing that I've been shovelling snow. Happily, the Deputy Editor and I did find time to make an igloo. Here she is bravely being the first to enter. 

Now, I shall endeavour to catch up on all the news.
