The Print Fair, the International Fine Print Dealers Associations yearly convergence of the worlds most prestigious print dealers and publishers, returns to the Seventh Regiment Armory for its thirteenth year. Eighty-seven exhibitors will bring over 100,000 fine art prints to this most celebrated exhibition and sale. For a complete list of exhibitors go to www.printdealers.com/printfairs.cfm?id=76&display=exhibitors

It is wonderful to see the work of living artists side by side with great works by Rembrandt and Picasso,” said Print Fair Committee Chairperson Diane Villani.

Both first-time and seasoned collectors are likely to find treasures to take home, as the prints offered range in price from under $500 to close to $1,000,000. The New York Times states, If you are thinking of starting a collection, it would be hard to find a better place to begin. In addition to the vast array of work on display, the Print Fair provides a rare opportunity for the public to consult with knowledgeable experts on print collecting and connoisseurship. It’s quite simply the most important fair of its kind, by far. All the major European curators come over, which is astonishing, said Armin Kunz, New York director of C. G. Boerner.

For the first year the Print Fair will preview with a party hosted by MoMA to benefit The Department of Prints and Illustrated Books exhibition, acquisitions, and educational activities. For tickets contact MoMA at 212-708-9680 or email specialevents@moma.org.
