5 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 PREFACE

Dear Visitor,

As a Dutchman living in New York since 1996, I can tell you that not many of my New York friends understood what I was talking about when I was heading to TEFAF in The Netherlands every March. Those days are over. Not only do most New York collectors–and many collectors from all over the US–visit our New York fairs in the

magnificent Park Avenue Armory, but many of them now plan on visiting the much bigger mother fair in Maastricht each year. It is my belief that this global reach is the biggest achievement of the TEFAF community: TEFAF is globally recognized as a brand of preeminence, regardless of the location. I would like to thank the City of Maastricht and the MECC for their hospitality. It is always a warm welcome arriving in the most beautiful city in the south of the Netherlands. The team at the MECC is working very hard as they are in the midst of a large renovation set to finish in 2021 as they continue to make sure TEFAF is the best experience possible. We are looking forward to welcoming you to TEFAF Maastricht 2020. Nanne Dekking Chairman Board of Trustees TEFAF

7 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 PREFACE

Alliance

Though a small city in global terms, Maastricht is a big name in the art world. We owe this to The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF). Bringing together 285 exhibitors from 22 countries, the fair for fine art, antiques and design is not only the largest of its kind but also of exceptionally high quality. TEFAF Maastricht is a household name. TEFAF has been hosted at the MECC conference centre since as far back as 1988. To uphold that high quality

TEFAF has come to represent, MECC is now undergoing a metamorphosis. It will be given a facelift, boosting its image as an international conference centre. It will also be equipped with facilities that meet the highest modern standards – something exhibitors and visitors alike can rightly expect. However, quality does not stop once you exit MECC. Our city is committed to improving other facilities that can contribute to every fair’s success. These projects focus on traffic and parking, air and rail connections, cultural side-events, and hospitality. That’s why TEFAF and the city are forming an alliance to enhance the status of the fair and of the city. TEFAF is a generator of quality for the city; it inspires us to think big not just for nine days in March, but the whole year. After all, quality is not a single act. Quality is a habit. Maastricht hopes the fair is a success for organizers, exhibitors, visitors, and the whole city. Annemarie Penn-te Strake Mayor of Maastricht


9 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 PREFACE

Take the liberty to enjoy

2020 is an exceptional year for Europe and the world. 75 years ago, the horrors of the Second World War came to an end. We are not only commemorating this historical fact, we are also celebrating it. 75 years of liberty is something to cherish. Here and everywhere. Art is the ultimate form of freedom. Whether on a canvas, by shaping natural stone, clay or through the lens of a camera: artists are free to express themselves through their art. TEFAF offers a cross-section of 7,000 years of art history, which has developed in many directions. From old masters to contemporary artists, you’ll find it all at this world-leading art fair. TEFAF brings people and cultures

from all over the world together in Maastricht. In an international setting, with Belgium and Germany in close proximity. Without the liberty that was fought for 75 years ago, this would never have happened. In my opinion, it is only logical that such a prestigious, international event as TEFAF takes place in Maastricht and Limburg. After all, the Maastricht Treaty made this city the birthplace of a Europe without borders. As we are talking about freedom, take the liberty not only of enjoying the richness of art at TEFAF, but also of enjoying the surroundings. Over the past decades, Limburg has proven itself to be a tremendously hospitable region. A magnum opus full of colours, influences and styles, that every few kilometres resembles yet another work from art history, but at the same time can’t be compared with anything else. In short: enjoy Maastricht, enjoy Limburg. Theo Bovens King’s Commissioner for / Governor of the Province of Limburg

23 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 RESTORATION FUND TEFAF

PROJECTS TEFAF MUSEUM RESTORATION FUND The V&A, UK, and Los Angeles County Museum (LACMA), USA are the recipients of the 2020 TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund. Following visits to TEFAF Maastricht 2019, the two institutions applied for support from TEFAF for their distinct projects. The V&A are restoring The Kaufmann Office (1935-1937) by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959), an exceptional complete interior by one of the best known architects of the 20th-century, whilst LACMA will analyse and restore a recently acquired oil painting, Pietá (c.1710-20) by Melchor Pérez Holguín (c.1660-c.1732), the first painting from Bolivia to enter LACMA’s collection of Spanish colonial art. La Pietá LACMA’s Conservation Science Department in collaboration with the Getty Conservation Institute has begun a complete analysis to document the painting’s materials, techniques, and condition. Various scientific means, including macro XRF scanning (MA-XRF) that will result in elemental mapping of pigment application, will help to

determine how the artist intended the paint to appear. Following restoration, the Pietá will be much closer in appearance to what it was originally. The rich darkness of the background will be dramatic against the glowing gold decorations and the painting should delight and inform visitors to LACMA for years to come. Pietá will make its debut in LACMA’s upcoming exhibition The Eye of the Imagination: LACMA’s Collection of Spanish Colonial Art, curated by Ilona Katzew and scheduled to open in 2021.

The last major solo exhibition of Mark Manders (Volkel, 1968) on Dutch soil was more than 5 years ago. This new overview shows how Manders’ special oeuvre develops organically: from old work that has been revised to his latest creations. The exhibition therefore constitutes both an overview of Manders’ work and a new step in his artist process. www.bonnefanten.nl

Yes, Please! Location: Marres, House for Contemporary Culture Date: 8.03.2020 – 07.06.2020 The exhibition Yes, Please! brings an ode to sexual fantasies.

They travelled to different festivals, in their caravan named Bolleke (which is radio equipped), to interview hundreds of people. For this exhibition, Marres will be transformed into a house of senses in which visitors, accompanied by hosts and provided with menus with various sexual fantasies, can come and listen to the recorded erotic interviews. www.marres.org

Freshly mowed grass, a thunderstorm in the distance, the call of a cuckoo. You can hear it all in Beethoven’s romantic Pastoral Symphony.

32 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 TEFAF CONCERT

TEFAF Concert with Anneleen Lenaerts in Maastricht’s Sint Janskerk church As part of TEFAF and the city, Maastricht will be hosting a special TEFAF concert starring the world-renowned harpist Anneleen Lenaerts and an ensemble from the Brussels Philharmonic, performing under the name ‘Brussels Philharmonic Soloists’ and bringing together Nadja Nevolovitsch (first violin), Samuel Nemtanu (second violin), Mihai Cocea (viola), and Kistaps Bergs (cello). The concert is scheduled for Tuesday evening on 10 March and will be held in Sint Janskerk church in the centre of Maastricht. Since 2010, Anneleen Lenaerts (32) has been the Solo Harpist of the famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and has played in the New Year’s concert in Vienna and other performances. Despite her young

age, she has also built up a remarkable international solo career and won dozens of major awards. In October 2019, she won the Opus Klassik – regarded as the Oscars of classical music – in Berlin for her solo album Nina Rota: works for harp. Widely regarded as one of the best harpists in the world, she also performs solo in famous venues such as Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall New York, Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and the Grosses Festspielhaus in Salzburg. The Wiener Zeitung recently wrote: ‘With an effortlessness one can only envy, Anneleen offers us breathtaking insights into her instrument, itself truly the work of a higher power.’


Anneleen Lenaerts, born in Peer in Belgian Limburg and currently living in Vienna, says she is looking forward to the special TEFAF concert. ‘I teach at the Maastricht Academy of Music every few weeks, as I think it’s important to pass on a love for music to young people. I’ve built up a bond with this beautiful city and hope to give something back to Maastricht by

performing at this concert during such a prestigious event as TEFAF’. The programme includes music by French Impressionist composers including Debussy, then a Rhapsody by Grandjany, followed by film music by Nino Rota, known for his film music for Fellini, The Godfather, and other major films.

Art treasures in Maastricht

Basilica of Our Lady Exceptional works The Basilica of Our Lady, or ‘slevrouwe’ (Our Lady) as it also known by the locals, is a fine example of Romanesque architecture. Several exceptional works of art can be found in the church. The treasure room also has a large number of objects of ecclesiastical art and crafts such as luxuriously embroidered copes and chasubles, the ‘Levite Dress’ of Saint Lambert (Maastricht’s last bishop), relics in ornate reliquaries, procession banners, and religious silver objects and statues. Both religious and non-religious visitors and residents often light a candle in reverence. The candles cast mesmerizing reflections on the glass behind which Mary shines bright. It is a beautiful sight and definitely worth a visit, whether as a one off or as a ritual! During TEFAF there is a special daily ‘TEFAF-arttour’ in the church with an extra guided event on sunday march 8. www.sterre-der-zee.nl

Basilica of St.Servatius | treasure room On Maastricht’s grandest square, you’ll find the impressive and monumental Sint Servaasbasiliek (Basilica of St. Servatius). Said to be built on the grave of St. Servatius, the church is considered to be the oldest still standing in the Netherlands. The large, triple-nave transept basilica was built largely in Romanesque style, using millstone grit and marl. The church building serves as a parish church of the Roman Catholic St. Servatius parish and deanery church of Maastricht. This basilica has one of the most magnificent treasure rooms in Europe. This is where Maastricht keeps her greatest treasures. The most valuable of these is the shrine of St. Servatius (also called the Noodkist), containing the relics of the Netherlands’ first bishop. This example of ‘Maaslands’ goldsmith craftsmanship is one of the most valuable in the Netherlands. You can also admire the pilgrim’s staff, the bust of St. Servatius, the pectoral cross, the chalice with portable altar, the many relics and reliquaries, liturgical objects, and textiles. You won’t believe your eyes. www.sintservaas.nl

This impressive storytelling exhibition was created by using a mix of tableware, designs, old adverts, family portraits, and old transfer prints (a method of decorating enamels or ceramics). The imposing tiled wall is 120 metres long and five metres high, making it the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. The Sphinx passage is situated in the middle of the old Sphinx factories on the Boschstraat. www.sphinxkwartier.nl MAASTRICHT GUIDE

Architecture Bonnefanten The Bonnefanten is situated on the banks of the River Maas, in the architecturally interesting district of Céramique, and forms a splendid addition to the skyline of Maastricht. Around 1990, the Bonnefantenmuseum got the opportunity to construct a new building on ‘Céramique’, a former industrial estate right on the banks of the Maas, opposite the old centre of Maastricht. For the realisation of an outstanding building on this location, the museum approached Aldo Rossi, who (in the words of Van Grevenstein, museum director at the time) “coupled great expressive inventiveness with a reserved visual language”. www.bonnefanten.nl Museumbasement Derlon ‘Piazza Romana’ As a contemporary design hotel in the historic heart of Maastricht, built on top of Roman architectural treasures dating from the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries, Hotel Derlon goes to show that old and new can exist in harmony. Research conducted before the construction of the hotel revealed how precious these findings really were, so the decision was made to conserve them and put them on display on the ‘Piazza Romana’ (the Roman square). Now the hotel’s basement is home to part of a square from the 2nd and 3rd century, a well from the 3rd century, part of a pre-Roman road made from boulders from the river Meuse, and parts of a wall and a gate from the 4th century. www.derlon.com 36

The Vault | North Caves Built at the start of the Second World War, the purpose of this vault was to protect the Netherlands’ most important art treasures from air attacks. About 800 artworks, including Rembrandt’s Night Watch, Potter’s The Young Bull, and Vermeer’s Little Street, were stored here for three years. In the underground marl corridors, the air is chilly and damp. An ingenious climate control system ensured these delicate canvasses remained undamaged. Near by the Vault you find the keepers’ room, a room used by the Dutch military police, charged with guarding the vault and the entrance tunnel. www.exploremaastricht.com

Dominicanen Bookshop Since the autumn of 2006, you can find the unique Dominicanen bookshop (previously Selexyz Dominicanen and Polare Maastricht) in the centuries-old Dominicanenkerk (Dominican church) in Maastricht. Two hundred years ago, the church lost its sacred function and has since served for many years as a reptile house, bicycle shed, and ‘carnival temple’. Many Maastricht residents have special memories here, including their ‘first kiss’ at carnival time. You can still feel this rich history at this beautiful location. www.libris.nl/dominicanen

From Maastricht it is only a short trip to Cube design museum in Kerkrade, the first museum in the Netherlands that is entirely dedicated to design. Cube focuses on design that offers solutions for human needs and ambitions. The exhibitions in Cube show design by national and international designers; designs that have an impact on our world and makes you question your perspective on daily life. Cube also gives insights on the process of design and lets you co-create with design students, who are working in the Cube design labs. Why not combine your visit to TEFAF with a visit to Cube?

The exhibition ‘(Re)design Death’ features contemporary design around the central themes of saying farewell, dying, mourning and remembering. Over 40 objects will provide you with insight in how contemporary designers deal with the needs and rituals in connection with death, in many cases they result from personal experiences.

photography Francesco D’Angelo

11 feb / 24 jan


New rituals to replace older, religious rituals As an outcome of secularisation (more than half of the Dutch no longer feel to belong to a religious denomination) and individualisation, traditional (religious) ways of dealing with death are no longer felt to be meaningful. Death and the resulting loss are now mainly felt to be a strictly personal matter. As a reaction to these developments designers come up with new approaches and inspiration for radically new products and concepts to deal with death, mourning and remembrance. Design becomes a powerful means to create new and personal rituals. Preparation, Saying Farewell, Mourning & Life after Death The exhibition is divided into three successive themes, derived from the several stages in the process of dying: Preparation, Saying Farewell, Mourning & Life after Death. The objects shown at the exhibition originate from all over the world and are of a contemporary, futuristic or speculative nature. Attention is paid to functional and technological designs,but there are also poetic and experience- and people-oriented designs.

Museumplein 2, 6461 MA Kerkrade

(Re)design Death is on display from 11 Feb. 2020 to 24 Jan. 2021.

71 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 HISTORIC MAASTRICHT AND LIMBURG

Ten highlights in the Sphinxkwartier Discover Maastricht’s industrial heritage

Leave Maastricht’s charming and historic city centre behind for a while and discover its industrial heritage. The old Sphinx factory buildings form the backdrop to several creative and cultural hotspots there –places that are unpolished and quirky, cultural and creative, with a few rough edges. All sorts of things are possible: sleeping in an old factory building, dining in the cellars of Maastricht’s historic inner harbour, or enjoying a film in the former factory power plant. Welcome to the Sphinxkwartier, a new and unusual part of Maastricht.


1. Films at Lumière Cinema From Oscar winners to art-house films and ‘movies that matter’, you can catch the latest acclaimed films (and documentaries) in the Sphinx factory’s former power plant. And before or after your film, enjoy a quick bite, a glass of wine or a sumptuous three-course meal in Lumiere’s own restaurant-café (with its idyllic waterside terrace). 2. Cutting-edge music in the Muziekgieterij Love rock and cutting-edge music? Then the Muziekgieterij is the place to be. This former crate factory and warehouse offers dazzling live performances and experimental music with a monthly line-up of local and international acts. 3. Architecture then and now Once a showroom for the Sphinx factory’s latest ceramic masterpieces, the premises occupied by Bureau Europa are now the setting for exhibitions, lectures, workshops and debates on architecture, urban planning and design. 4. Rooftop drinks and bites Imagine enjoying the warm glow of a Maastricht sunset with a cocktail in your hand. If the thought appeals to you, then visit Bold, a rooftop bar on the eighth floor of the striking Eiffel Building. The menu includes ‘social food’ – small dishes to share, because it’s more fun enjoying food together.

5. Creating, learning and dining in the Brandweerkantine Creative spirits + cultural hotspot + coffee. Maastricht’s former fire station is now a creative incubator for young entrepreneurs, artists and performers. The space that once housed the fire engines is now the Brandweerkantine, a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. 6. Wining & dining & art in an historic inner harbour This spot may well be Maastricht’s best-kept secret. Find out for yourself. The Bassin, right in the heart of the Sphinxkwartier, is a remarkable place. The old, historic inner harbour is now home to several restaurants, grand cafés and an art gallery, all located within its dockyard cellars. 7. The history of Maastricht ceramics in tiles The Sphinxkwartier’s old factory is a fine and attractive building, but what actually happened there while it was still up and running? That is precisely what you will learn from the 30,000 or so tiles that line the 120-metre-long Sphinxpassage. This permanent exhibition illustrates the illustrious history of Maastricht’s ceramics industry in a unique spot that is open all year. 8. Organic groceries (locally sourced) This is where locals in the Sphinxkwartier go for everyday organic groceries. From Maastricht-grown potatoes to creamy cheeses crafted

Tip Book the guided tour ‘Hidden Places & Secret Spaces’ with Visit Maastricht and get to know more about Maastricht’s industrial heritage.

10. Unspoilt nature in Frontenpark An urban park, but one that’s entirely in keeping with the edgy industrial nature of the adjacent Sphinxkwartier. Frontenpark has been described as the Sphinxkwartier’s rough and tumble backyard, and for good reason. A walk in the park takes you through a piece of unspoilt nature and alongside places of historical and cultural interest. And all that right in the middle of the city.

in the Ardennes region, and from Limburg apple juice to Italian wines, Gedeelde Weelde makes a point of stocking as many regional products as possible. Visit the cafe for a healthy breakfast, a vegetarian lunch or a slice of freshly baked cake. 9. Inspiring interior furnishings in old factory buildings The mixing tubs of the oldest factory buildings in the Sphinxkwartier have made way for Loods 5, a home furnishings and lifestyle store. The fusion of industrial heritage and contemporary design make this place an inspiring source of interior and styling ideas.

86 MAASTRICHT CITY GUIDE 2020 PROVINCE AND BONNEFANTEN

Inspired by the TEFAF Favourites in the Bonnefanten Museum

Drawing inspiration from The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) in Maastricht, several members of the Provincial Executive of Limburg each present a work of art that is part of the collection of the Bonnefanten Museum, the Provincial Museum.


‘No such thing as waste’ A favourite of Ruud Burlet, member of the Provincial Executive for Sustainability, the Environment and Procurement

Artist: Grayson Perry

Born in 1960, lives and works in Chelmsford – London. Title The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman date of work 2011 Materials oils glass rope cast iron flint Technique cut blown Dimensions total height 305 cm total width 204 cm total depth 79 cm Credits/Photo credits Bonnefanten Museum collection. Acquired in 2016 with support from the Mondriaan Fund and the Rembrandt Association (Titus Fund and Innorosa Fund)

‘With The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman, artist Grayson Perry has created a monument to the unknown craftsman in the form of a burial ship,’ is how Burlet describes his favourite artwork. ©Maastricht ‘It is aMarketing tribute- Eighty8things to “ego-less creati-

vity”. Elaborating on the idea of the pilgrimage (which often has a tomb as the destination), Perry included in the ship all kinds of elements related to this idea, such as the scallop shell and the glass bottles. They are all objects that have been given a second life as part of this beautiful ship. That thought appeals to me: there’s no such thing as waste. All kinds of things that we would normally throw away without a second thought are given the opportunity to have a place in the spotlight. As a member of the Provincial Executive, I also deal with recycling and sustainability in my portfolio, and this kind of material never fails to inspire me. At home, too, I try to be thrifty with materials, and not wasteful. If something breaks, I always try to repair it myself first and, funnily enough, I quite often manage.’ ‘The fact that objects can be reused in craftsmanship and have been used literally as a subject, the materials used, and the reference to pilgrimages all bring together many aspects of art history in one work.’

Symbol for regional interconnectedness Favourite of Andy Dritty, member of the Provincial Executive for Space, Living and Europe

Artist: Joannes Andreas Gerardus l’ Herminotte, Born in 1732, Maastricht Title Three-Tap Urn Date of work 1758 1760 Materials silver Technique forged Dimensions total height 30.8 cm total width 29 cm total weight 1,473 g Acquired in 2017 and made possible in part by the Rembrandt Association (thanks to its Silver Theme Fund) and an anonymous private donor.

‘The goings-on between the countries in this part of Europe is particularly interesting,’ Andy Dritty recounts. ‘The same applies to its history. Hence my connection with this unique silver three-tap urn made by l’Herminotte and dating from between 1758 and 1760. Not only is it one of the masterpieces from the Bonnefanten Museum because of its art value, but also because of a

MAASTRICHT GUIDE

deeper symbolic meaning, which expresses Limburg’s Euregional interconnectedness.’ Maastricht silverware was known for its high quality and attracted customers from far and wide in the Euregio. Joannes l’Herminotte (1732-1802) was considered to be one of the most prominent Maastricht silversmiths of his time. ‘Making and drinking a cup of coffee or tea is par for the course for us these days, but in the 18th century it was reserved for the richest of the rich.’ L’Herminotte mainly produced silver in the exuberant Liège style. For this three-tap urn, he opted for a combination of the Liège style with the more modest Dutch style, so this rare object shows the extremely complex cultural, geographical, and political position that Maastricht held in the 18th century. The panels around the three taps are symmetrical but they are also all different. ‘For me, this symbolizes the fact that Dutch, German, and Belgian regions all come together here.’


‘A beautiful reference to the uncertainty of life’ Favourite of Carla Brugman-Rustenburg, member of the Provincial Executive for Energy, Nature and Public Transport

Artist: Pieter Brueghel the Younger Born in 1564 Artwork Winter landscape with a bird trap Materials oil on board Technique painted Donated in 2005 from the Rembrandt Association to the Bonnefanten Museum

A colourful group of ice-skating children, swirling skaters, and men playing curling on the ice fills this landscape, with a hole in the ice on the left in the foreground and low bushes and countless birds on the right. On the right is a bird trap: a plank with a stick with a rope attached to it. The birds pecking at the food will be crushed as soon as someone tugs the rope. In the background is a low bridge over the river, and on the horizon you can still vaguely make out the contours of a town and a windmill shrouded in mist. ‘At first glance it looks like a pretty

ordinary representation of a winter landscape,’ Carla Brugman-Rustenburg tells us. ‘Yet there is a deeper meaning to this depiction: the bird trap will kill the birds, the ice may break under the weight of the people, and the hole is a trap for the unsuspecting skater. Taken together, it is probably an allusion to the uncertainty of existence. This painting calls to mind cherished memories for me: such as my art lessons at primary school with a weekly visit to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. But it also reminds me of skating virtually every year back in the day. That seems as though it could be a thing of the past, thanks to climate change. Pieter Brueghel the Younger’s painting is a poignant reference to the uncertainty of life. That is something that has always been the case and something we’re having to deal with now, with all the visible changes in our climate. It’s all beautifully symbolized by the slippery ice, the hole in the ice, and the bird trap.’

‘The image of Judeo-Christian humanistic and social values’ Favourite of Robert Housmans, member of the Provincial Executive for the Social Agenda, Healthcare and Security

Artist: Ambrosius Francken the Elder (painter) Liège Born in 1544 Work Let the children come to me

The painter of this beautiful work, Ambrosius Francken the Elder, was mainly inspired by the Italian painter Raphael (1483 – 1520) when producing this painting,’ Robert Housmans explains. ‘The kneeling woman and the man standing to the left of Christ are both modelled on figures on one of the tapestries in the Sistine Chapel in Rome: The miraculous catch of fish. These tapestries were woven in the workshop of the Brussels tapestry weaver, Pieter van Aelst, at the beginning of the sixteenth century based on models or the Raphael Cartoons. These cartoons had a huge impact on many painters in

MAASTRICHT GUIDE

Brussels and Antwerp. The chubby, naked child in the middle is not the artist’s own creation: it was based on an example from the Italian Renaissance. What I love about this painting is the way in which the artist uses light and dark hues to draw the attention to the children in the centre of the canvas. I also ask myself what the two men centre left of the painting are discussing. We may never know. The Judeo-Christian humanistic and social values are the foundation of our modern western society. These values are portrayed beautifully in this painting.’


‘Acquired at TEFAF’. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’ Favourite of Ger Koopmans, member of the Provincial Executive for Culture, Finances and Integration

Artist: Michiel Jansz van Mierevelt (Born in 1566)

Work ‘Frédéric-Maurice de la Tour d’Auvergne, duc de Bouillon, prince de Condé Sedan et de Rancourt

On the last day of TEFAF 2019, the Bonnefanten Museum purchased a painting depicting the first governor of Maastricht. The work used to hang in an exhibition at the Weiss Gallery in London. It is a portrait entitled ‘Frédéric-Maurice de la Tour d’Auvergne, duc de Bouillon, prince de Condé Sedan et de Rancourt, an oil on board by Michiel Jansz van Mierevelt. This duke of Bouillon became the first governor of Maastricht in the 17th century. He was a grandson of William of Orange. The painting is of him when he was only 21 years old. The Province of Limburg had its sights on the painting from the

start. TEFAF used it as one of the campaign images. ‘We weren’t the only ones after the painting,’ member of the Provincial Executive, Ger Koopmans, is talking about the time the deal was sealed. ‘This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This work is an important part of Limburg’s history.’ Curator Lars Hendrikman, the person responsible at Bonnefanten for the Old Masters section, was delighted with the purchase. ‘From a cultural-historical perspective, it’s a very important work. We also have very few real portraits from that period, so this is a welcome addition.’
