This week, the 2018 Fine Art Print Fair presented by the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) returns to the Javits Center, River Pavilion for the second year in a row. The fair takes place from Thursday, October 25 through Sunday, October 28, with a preview night on Wednesday, October 24. This is the largest fair dedicated to printmaking.

This year’s event will feature 80 exhibitors selected from IFPDA’s international membership. The works on display will include both Old Master and contemporary works, as well as rare and new-to-market pieces. This also means the works span a variety of price ranges, from hundreds of dollars into millions. This an event for every art-lover alike.

“The feel is like a museum for sale with the bonus of unsurpassed advice if you want it,” said David Tunick, President of the IFPDA.

Some of the works on view include a lithograph and screenprint of Bruce Nauman’s  “Clear Vision” (1973), a lithograph of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” (1895), a screenprint of Andy Warhol’s “The Scream (After Munch)” (1984), an etching and scraper of Pablo Picasso’s “Le Repas frugal” (1904), and much more.
