"I was a young adult when I visited TEFAF the first time. The 2020 edition could have been my 30th visit. For the first 20 years I visited TEFAF with my uncle, a smart man. He could determine the most expensive piece between 2 almost identical still life flowers from the old masters. I remember Mr Noortman’s booth at the entrance. Mr Noortman was always smoking a cigar. At Mr Loek Brons’ booth you could always grab a Dutch mint candy. The entrance was decorated with the most beautiful flower bouquets (I look differently at the flowers now). It was an impressive fair".
