The European Fine Art Foundation (TEFAF), has revealed a special preview of works that will appear at the second iteration of TEFAF Online, running September 9-13, 2021 with an invitation-only preview on September 8, 2021. This “First Look” provides a glimpse into the quality, breadth and depth of artwork available at TEFAF Online 2021 to visitors collecting across styles, eras, cultures, and mediums. Over 700 works of art will be displayed digitally at the fair, which will also launch new features, including TEFAF Collection pages and interactive programming.
Among the highlights, Lisson Gallery, New York, will offer Marina Abramovic's (Serbia, b.1946) Seven Deaths: The Snake, 2020-21, one in a series of seven carved alabaster self-portraits, which correspond to an immersive cinematic experience the artist debuted last year in Munich that explores her ties to the tragic figure of Callas.
Galerie Karsten Greve AG, St. Moritz, will exhibit Kaydoorsay, 1991, by John Chamberlain (USA, 1927-2011), which was originally a gift from the artist to Collection Arman.
Bailly Gallery, Geneva-Paris, will display Diego Giacometti's (Switzerland, 1902-1985) Table Basse Rectangulaire aux Pattes Octogonales, 1957, a stunning example of the sought-after artist's work with bronze, wrought iron and Belgium black marble.
Galerie Tanakaya, Paris, will present Edo Hyakkei - Horikiri No Hanashôbu, 1857, by leading 19th Century Japanese designer Utagawa Hiroshige (Japan, 1797-1858). One of the most significant prints of the period, this piece is part of a trilogy: Hanami – Tsukimi – Yukimi (the Flowers – the Moon – the Snow).
Kallos Gallery, London, will showcase Head Fragment of a Polykleitan Youth, 500 AD, attributed to Polykleitos (Greece). The Roman marble head fragment of the Polykleitan youth encapsulates the absolute physical ideal of a young man of mid-5th century BC Greece, the height of Athenian classicism for which Polykleitan sculpture was so revered.
