Bugatti's at the TEFAF Art Fair 2022
There is more to life than just car shows, of course. This was the 2nd time that I went to the TEFAF International art and antiques fair, which was held in Maastricht from June 25 - 30 , 2022. This particular time it came in the news much more than otherwise, because of a heist on a Jeweller's stand on June 28.
However, as a Bugattiste you are not interested in jewelry, you are always on the look out for something special. And, you will know that of course Ettore's father Carlo and brother Rembrandt are amongst the most famous artists, each in their own field. Unluckily, the entire fair with its 242 exhibitors from 20 different countries and artworks spanning 7,000 years of history, there was too much to be seen. We only were able to see probably half of the exhibitors, during the entire day.
And yes, of course I was not disappointed, with 4 of Rembrandt's sculptures, and a very special Carlo Bugatti item. The furniture, for which Carlo is best known was made in considerable numbers, and are therefore quite often on the market. Not his silverware however, which he started making after moving to France. The limited numbers make them almost as rare as a Bugatti T57S Atlantic....
