Géza von Habsburg is an internationally renowned author and leading authority on Fabergé. Much of his career has been devoted to organizing and curating exhibitions all over the world. He served as the curator and organizer for Fabergé, Jeweller to the Tsars (1986–87) at the Kunsthalle in Munich. Also, while a Board Member of the Fabergé Arts Foundation, he was Chief Curator of Fabergé, Imperial Court Jeweler (1993–94), which was shown in Saint Petersburg, Paris and London. He also served as Guest Curator of Fabergé in America, which toured five cities in the United States (1996–97).
As an educator, Géza von Habsburg served as an associate professor at the New York School of Interior Design, the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, and New York University. He is currently a lecturer for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Last year saw a transformation of AIFAF with the adoption of an easily navigable floor plan, a more contemporary presentation and a fashionable new restaurant and VIP facilities. Together, these elements offer an extraordinary atmosphere for viewing and purchasing the museum-quality art. Each work is vetted by experts who carefully examine for quality, authenticity and condition, ensuring that collectors may buy with confidence.
This year’s AIFAF will be followed by the inaugural Miami
Art + Design (MA+D) from February 13 – 18. Set in a spectacular waterfront location “in the round” at Bayfront Park in Miami, it is now possible for visitors from afar to visit chic Palm Beach and alluring Miami on successive weekends. MA+D will showcase more than 40 prominent international art and design galleries featuring fine and decorative arts from Old Masters, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to Post War and Pop Art offering collectors an opportunity to view and purchase treasures rarely seen outside major museum collections. MA+D is produced by International Fine Art Expositions (IFAE) in collaboration with the SNA, the organizer of the prestigious Paris Biennale and co-organizer of New York's Salon: Art + Design.
