Also returning to the market at the 2020 TEFAF Maastricht will be Paysanne Devant Une Chaumiere (Peasant Woman In Front Of A Farmhouse) by Vincent van Gogh, which will be presented by London dealer Dickinson. This landscape painting of a cottage was famously sold for £4 at a farm auction in 1967, before being authenticated by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Now on offer for an undisclosed price, Paysanne Devant Une Chaumiere comes from the private collection of an anonymous American collector, who reportedly acquired it for US$1.7 million at Sotheby’s in 2001.

TEFAF Maastricht will be open to the public to March 15, with tickets and additional information available on the fair’s official website.
