The much gossiped-about face-off between art dealers and auction houses at this year’s European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht, which opened with a glorious vernissage on Mar. 8, turned out to be a non-event. In fact, art dealers on hand paid scant heed to the presence of their archrivals. "Lots of people, lots of interest and lots of works reserved," said a beaming Konrad Bernheimer, TEFAF founding member and head of the London- and Munich-based Bernheimer-Colnaghi galleries. "Turnover is up from last year at this stage and it looks as if it is going to be a very good fair."
