Winners of annual grants from the new TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund

THE first winners of annual grants from the new TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund are the Denver Art Museum in Colorado and the Rijksmusem, Amsterdam.

Denver receives £26,000 to help restore a c.1736 Canaletto Venice scene while the Dutch museum gets £22,000 for work on a 1476 group of ten bronze statuettes.

The two were selected by chairman Professor Dr Henk van Os, who heads antiques vetting committees at TEFAF, alongside ex-director of London’s Wallace Collection Dame Rosalind Savill and private art dealer Rachel Kaminsky, a former head of Old Masters at Christie’s New York.

The fund was inaugurated as part of TEFAF Maastricht’s Silver Jubilee celebrations.
