Last week I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting BRAFA art and antiques fair in Brussels. Held on the outskirts of Brussels in an expansive space it holds 128 different galleries from 12 different countries. With its strengths laying in decorative art, there were many ranging areas of art and antiques that transcended through many centuries and continents. Below are some of my favourite artworks from the hugely diverse selection exhibited.
Jane Graverol, Jeune femme assise, 1927 from Vincent Lecuyer’s gallery in Paris
An early 18th century skull of a hippopotomos from Finch & Co in London
Picasso, Nu agenouille et amour (1986), Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris
The Rape of Africa, David Lachapelle, 2009 Maruani & Noirhomme Gallery in Brussels
Head of the Devi, 5th/6th century Indian statue from Hioco gallery in Paris
Tim Noble and Sue Webster, ’$’ 2001 at Guy Pieters’ Gallery in Paris
