PALM BEACH, FL.- Now in its 17th year, the American International Fine Art Fair hosts dealers from around the world presenting artwork spanning all periods – from antiquities to contemporary, as well as period to contemporary jewelry.

AIFAF has been recognized as one of this country’s premier art and antiques fair for 17 years. In 2012, AIFAF introduced a major redesign to incorporate more modern and contemporary design, which was well received by exhibitors, press and collectors alike. The 2013 fair will continue its tradition of bringing together an exceptional array of fully vetted art, jewelry and design. A selection of 2013 highlights follow:

AN ARRAY OF MASTERS:
AIFAF veteran Richard Green (London) will bring an impressive collection of works spanning from 17th century Old Masters to 21st century British art. The gallery brings forty-five years of expertise and knowledge in their specialties and is known for the excellent provenances of their works. This year’s presentation includes Claude Monet, Jean Béraud and Gerhard Richter among other notable artists.

Waterhouse & Dodd (London + New York) will present a distinguished collection of Impressionist and Modern Art alongside contemporary works by some of the times’ most coveted artists, including works by Alexander Calder, Albert Gleizes, Albert Marquet, Gustave Loiseau, Henri Lebasque, Fernand Léger, Jean Metzinger, Raoul Dufy, Susan Valadon, Jean Francois Rauzier and Lynn Chadwick.

New to AIFAF, Gallery Shchukin (Paris + Moscow) will present works by contemporary artists and world-famous masters of painting, including artists of the 20th-century avant-garde, Russian émigré artists and contemporary artists working with the latest trends.

ASIAN CONTEMPORARY:
Michael Goedhuis returns to AIFAF with a presentation of leading Chinese contemporary art, as well as works from the Neolithic period to Modern. The gallery will bring works by ink painters Yao Jui-chung, Wei Ligang and Zhang Zhaohui and sculptors Li Chen and Xie Aige, among additional Chinese artists.

RARE AND UNIQUE OBJETS D’ART:
Always searching for the elusive and rare, Peter Finer of London has amassed an extraordinary collection of arms and armor that is a perennial favorite of AIFAF collectors and connoisseurs.

The largest dealer worldwide in estate Georg Jensen silver, The Silver Fund, will return to AIFAF in 2013. In addition to the comprehensive collection of Georg Jensen hollowware, their inventory includes exceptional 20th century silver designed by Jean Puiforicat, William Spratling, Antonio Pineda and many other great 20th century designers.

Mallett will present an outstanding collection of furniture and works of art, including pictures, clocks and other high quality objets d'art, primarily from the 18th century and Regency periods with a selection of Modern works as well. For over 100 years Mallett has been sourcing important antiques with impeccable provenance for private collectors and the great museums of the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

EXQUISITE GEMS:
BAYCO, “the marquee of excellence,” presents a stunning collection of precious gems. The array of jewels includes African rubies, Ceylon and Burmese sapphires, pink sapphires, Colombian emeralds and diamonds. Each piece is hand crafted and uniquely designed.

Fabergé brings an exquisite collection of extraordinary jeweled masterpieces that pay homage to those designed for the Russian Imperial Court. The jewelry collection includes a timeless series of Fabergé eggs based on the lavish Imperial Easter eggs of the Romanov dynasty for a new generation of devotees.

Yvel, recent recipient of the highly prized ‘best in pearl design’ award at the Centurion Jewelry Show, returns with a stunning collection of rare pearls and gemstones set with 18K gold, including one-of-a-kind works. The Israeli based designer is one of the world’s leading producers of sustainably “farmed” pearls and are known for their high quality and outstanding and unique design.

AIFAF emphasizes artwork and decorative arts that have withstood the test of time. From Old Masters, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to Post War and Pop Art, collectors will have the opportunity to view and purchase treasures rarely seen outside major museum collections.
