Brexit at Tefaf

7 March 2017

Politics and arts come together at the thirtieth edition of Tefaf Maastricht, which opens Friday 10th of March. The British dealer in rare books and prints Daniel Crouch is furnishing a themed stand on Europe and Brexit. A joke of course, but with a serious tone to it,’ he says. Because through a variety of costly atlases and old maps he makes it clear to the public that our idea of the age-old European nation states with each their own national identity is nothing more than a myth.

Mapping London from Daniel Crouch Rare Books

3 January 2012

Daniel Crouch Rare Books has just issued their Catalogue III, Mapping London. Crouch is a specialist in maps and the associated types of material, such as sea charts, plans, atlases and globes. They focus on antiquarian examples, though there are a few items this time that make it into the last century. In this catalogue, Crouch has centered on one small corner of the globe, the city of London, and occasionally, a few miles of surrounding lands. Since most maps are targeted right on the city, as it follows the banks and bend in the River Thames, thumbing through this catalogue gives a bird’s eye view of how much the city has grown over the four centuries from the 15th through the 19th century. Naturally, a current map would show much greater expansion still, but London looks barely more than a large village 400 to 500 years ago.

Young dealers target museums

8 March 2013

The young dealers committee of Tefaf is trying a novel way to encourage new collectors. The fair is one generation old, and that generation is still very much involved. For the fair to evolve, it needs to attract more young dealers and young buyers,” says Daniel Crouch, one of the six members of the committee, which is in its second year and is chaired by Fabrizio Moretti, of Moretti Art Galleries. We want to bring in more people who are familiar with our world and the diverse material we sell, but who don’t necessarily come to the fair. We realised that, with the increasing professionalisation of fundraising at museums and libraries, there is a resource that can be marshalled,” Crouch says.
