American International Fine Art Fair 2012

America’s Premier Art and Antique Fair Returns to Palm Beach in February  

Palm Beach, FL – October 14, 2011- (Naples Art News) Now in its 16th year, American International Fine Art Fair (AIFAF) is one of the premier art, antique and jewelry fair in the United States. In 2012, AIFAF will again gather prestigious galleries and distinguished collectors from around the world during its return to the Palm Beach County Convention Center February 4th-12th, 2012, with a VIP Preview on February 3rd.

The carefully selected presentation will include international dealers representing disciplines of fine art from classical antiquity to contemporary, and an extensive collection of haute and period jewelry. The fair is fully vetted by leading museum curators and experts.

Continuing last year’s successful format, a full schedule of daily activities to coincide with the exhibitions will be included. These activities are comprised of informative lectures from highly respected museum curators and art experts, as well as cocktail parties and other social events.

To ensure all fair attendees receive full knowledge of the outstanding art exhibited at the fair, AIFAF will again partner with Corfield Morris to offer art advisory services to any visitor throughout the duration of the fair. Their team of independent expert advisers will be on hand to guide guests through the fair or straight to whatever they seek.

New to AIFAF in 2012, world-renowned Fabergé will present a special exhibition and lecture series – “Faberge: The Rebirth of an Icon”- lecture by Geza von Habsburg.  Paying homage to the legendary Imperial Eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé for the Romanov family, and celebrating the Egg as a timeless universal symbol of life, Fabergé has designed a collection of one-of-a-kind High Jewelry Egg Pendants, Les Fameux de Fabergé.  Each design illustrates a traditional Russian proverb, through complex, multi-layered concepts brought to life by the finest craftsmanship in the world today.  The first of these creations launched in Paris during Couture Week, July 2011, marking the beginning of a series of twelve High Jewelry Egg Pendants, one for every month of the year.  Each pendant, a wearable object of desire, involves a lengthy, exacting and in many cases pioneering fabrication process, pushing boundaries of both design and manufacture, and taking contemporary craftsmanship to a new level of sophistication.

Among highlights for AIFAF’s lecture series this year, Victoria Wyeth, granddaughter of “America’s Painter” Andrew Wyeth will present a special lecture and presentation.  Her unique personal perspective offers memories and insights unavailable before to the public.  Roger Ward, former Chief Curator at the Norton Museum of Art, will present “Who Owns That Art? Conspicuous Cases of Nazi-Era Restitution” and “Four Rediscovered Old Master Works; Leonardo, Raphael, Breughel and Velazquez.”  Bruce Helander, Editor-and-Chief of the Art Economistwill moderate a roundtable discussion and Erin Coe, Curator at the Hyde Collection, will present an informative lecture, “Georgia O’Keeffe at Lake George.”
