Front and back ‘La Vierge Noir’ – Karel Appel – 1966

Jaski Gallery was represented at the worlds most important art and antique fair Tefaf in Maastricht. The 2016 edition took place in the MECC-complex and was opened from March 11 until March 20.

One of the most spectacular CoBrA works that we showed at Tefaf 2016, was a striking larger than life sculpture by Karel Appel, titled ‘La Vierge Noire’, which was created exactly 50 years ago, in 1966. It was exhibited for the first time in 1968 in the Stedelijk Museum of Amsterdam. Besides this we showed a magnificent work by Pierre Alechinsky: ‘Loin de Tout’ from 1962, as well as ‘L’Abominable Homme des Neiges’ by Asger Jorn from 1959, which in 1982 was shown in the Guggenheim Museum in New York during a major contemporary exhibition.

We also showed other works by these three artists, and by Corneille, Constant, Eugène Brands, Hugo Claus, Jacques Doucet, Lucebert, Carl-Henning Pedersen, Reinhoud, Anton Rooskens and Theo Wolvecamp. We exhibited works by Cole Morgan as well.

More than 75.000 people visited Tefaf 2016.
