TEFAF Maastricht 2011 will bring together the highest quality of objects in each of its represented fields. This year Stair Sainty is please to be exhibiting for the first time since 1901 a recently rediscovered masterpiece, Ludus Pro Patria, by the highly influential Pierre Puvis de Chavannes; contemporary critics considered Puvis to be the greatest French painter of his day. In addition, we will exhibit a sun lit Courbet from a series of views of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), which the artist executed while living in exile in La-Tour-de-Peilz, a town on the lake's Swiss shore. Also of interest are two paintings by Dubois-Pillet, one of boats on the Seine, the other a still-life of flowers; hung side-by-side, they demonstrate this early pointillist artist's technique and range.
