NEW WORLD AT SALZBURG
by Brook S. Mason
Can the global art crowd endure yet another new entry on the fair circuit? Well, surprisingly, the answer is an emphatic "yes," at least when the show in question is the Salzburg World Fine Art Fair
, which opened on July 27, 2007, and runs through Aug. 4, 2007. Even Mme François Pinault
showed up -- and her husband owns Christie’s
and a slew of luxury brands. She spent four hours trolling the 30-dealer event, which is organized under the supervision of Yves Bouvier
, creator of the four-year-old Moscow World Fine Arts Fair
. Pinault’s presence alone warrants the fair the gilt-edged seal of approval.
