tefaf2tefaf8tefaf5tefaf9We were told, by a German art dealer, that Koons has been buying medieval art. There is plenty of that along with works from antiquity (up to 1920) presented by 94 international galleries at TEFAF’s inaugural New York show (October 22-26).

The Park Avenue Armory venue includes new exhibit spaces on the refurbished second floor, which when combined with the high quality Maastricht build makes for a transformative experience. An old space made new, to show old art that renews.

Mr. Ouattare, a Sunni, came to power in 2011 after a disputed election. The Ivory Coast parliament had determined that Mr. Ouattara was not born in Ivory Coast and therefore not eligible to be its president. And yet Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, used her influence to get him in and force his predecessor out. His predecessor, Laurent Gbagbo, a Catholic, is in the Hague (ICC) on charges related to trying to remain as president.
