Modern paintings, ancient furniture or design, jewels or paintings by Flemish masters can be admired in Palais 1 of Brussels Expo for the occasion of the 2020 edition of Eurantica Brussels that opens its doors from 28 until 31 March 2020.
The fair unites 97 Belgian and foreign exhibitors that will showcase in a surface that has increased with 15%. Eurantica also proposes an integrated open space restaurant. This dynamic formula reinforces the informal character of the fair that is known for its faithful and well-informed clientele. Attracted by the high discovery factor of the fair, the audience of amateurs and collectors is every year reinforced by a young generation with a more eclectic taste.
Design and Art nouveau are well represented this year, amongst others with gallery Thibaut Wolvesperges Art and Furniture (Brussels) – that combines the 18th and the 20th century. One can discover rare pieces by Gustave Serrurier-Bovy, a big name of the Art nouveau in Belgium, or Jules Wabbes, who embodies sober and vintage chic design. Bie Baert and Frank Van Laer will enlarge the offer of furniture and art objects with inspiring stands. Axel Pairon (Antwerp) surprises with a selection of design and contemporary pieces.
Old Masters are also in the spotlights, and specifically the Flemish masters that are presented by Galerie Barrez (Paris) but also Frederik Muller Antiek (Antwerp).
Modern paintings are well represented, and defended by specialists like the Antwerp galleries Raf Van Severen, NF Art Gallery or Beukelaer-Nordin Fine Arts.
Jewellery, a very active domain that is traditionally well-represented at the fair, also has some faithful adherents and some new faces. Also good to know: the participation of Maison Riondet (Lyon), specialised in collector’s watches.
The dynamics of the fair and its solid organisation attract a big number of French galleries, seduced by the Eurantica audience and do not hesitate to change their offer to the Belgian market, like Galerie Barrez, Bernard Bouisset, Galerie Lassus, Galerie Laurence Fayolle or also Galerie Humeurs (first participation). There is also the presence, for the first time, of Rosat Antiques Fine Silver, specialised in silverwork from Switzerland, and of faithful galleries like Galerie Louis and of Egbert Eibel – a première – from Germany, or Galerie Tandem and Het Ware Huis, specialised in Art nouveau and based in the Netherlands.
