American International Fine Art Fair February 3-12,2012

Now in its 16th year, American International Fine Art Fair (AIFAF) is the premier art, antique and jewelry fair in the United States. AIFAF will again gather prestigious galleries and distinguished collectors from around the world during its return to the Palm Beach County Convention Center February 4th-12th, 2012, with a VIP Preview on February 3rd.

The carefully selected presentation will include international dealers representing disciplines of fine art from classical antiquity to contemporary, and the world’s finest collection of haute and period jewelry. The fair is fully vetted by leading museum curators and experts.

Continuing last year’s successful format, a full schedule of daily activities will coincide with the exhibitions including informative lectures from highly respected museum curators and art experts, as well as cocktail parties and other social events.

2012 Highlights:
New to AIFAF this year, world-renowned Fabergé will present a special exhibition and lecture series – Faberge: The Rebirth of an Icon- lecture by Geza von Habsburg. Paying homage to the legendary Imperial Eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé for the Romanov family, and celebrating the Egg as a timeless universal symbol of life, Fabergé has designed a collection of one-of-a-kind High Jewelry Egg Pendants, Les Fameux de Fabergé. Each design illustrates a traditional Russian proverb, through complex, multi-layered concepts brought to life by the finest craftsmanship in the world today. The first of these creations launched in Paris during Couture Week, July 2011, marking the beginning of a series of twelve High Jewelry Egg Pendants, one for every month of the year. Each pendant, a wearable object of desire, involves a lengthy, exacting and in many cases pioneering fabrication process, pushing boundaries of both design and manufacture, and taking contemporary craftsmanship to a new level of sophistication.
