TEFAF New York Fall

Park Avenue Armory, 28 October - 1 November 2017
Fine and decorative art from antiquity to 1920

Following over three decades of unparalleled excellence in Europe, the TEFAF empire has expanded to the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. TEFAF’s inaugural fair on the other side of the Atlantic was a great success in 2016 and we look forward to participating again this coming fall.
