At Eurantica Brussels, 100 galleries and antique dealers are in the spotlight

From the 28th to the 31st of March 2019, gallery owners and antique dealers will unveil their golden nuggets to an increasingly numerous public, during Eurantica Brussels.

Modern paintings, period or design furniture, jewelry and canvases by Flemish masters will be gathered at the Palace 1 of Brussels Expo, for the 2019 venue of Eurantica Brussels, the event which opens its doors to a faithful and knowledgeable clientele. This international fair comprises 100 Belgian and foreign exhibitors, benefitting this year from a surface larger by 15 %.

Galleries and antique dealers gather at Eurantica Brussels

Attracted by the gregarious character of its animated alleys, the public of visitors and collectors will be joined by a younger generation with more eclectic tastes. This year, a very special guest will be in the spotlight. It's the Horta Museum of Brussels that is celebrating its 50th anniversary by presenting an exceptional ensemble of a dozen furniture pieces from the former Wolfers stores.

The 'place to be' for good deals

Amongst the not-to-be-missed stopovers, several exeptional stands are noticeable as soon as visitors enter: a space dedicated to the Empire period, the great names of Art Nouveau, where the 18th century is presented next to the 20th century: chic vintage design or art objects, leading specialists in the universe of jewelry, old watches, as well as galleries from Antwerp. Get ready to close some great deals!
