Maastricht is located in the heart of Europe and remains one of the most important fairs in the world for antiques, old masters and modern art.
Our stand is located in the “Works on Paper” section on the first floor and we are presenting a gouache by Sonia Delaunay from 1965 that has been shown at the Tate Moderne, during the “Sonia Delaunay” exhibition.
