The event, a must-see for the art community’s who’s who, boasts rare works of masters like Picasso, Paul Storr, and David Roberts among many others, including an impressive line-up of international exhibitors.

“As organisers, we believe the arrival of a high-calibre art and antiques fair is a timely addition to the ongoing initiatives being taken across the GCC art world,” said Brian Haughton, co-organiser of ‘Art Antiques Design Dubai’.

Haughton added, “Only the most established and reputable art and antiques dealers are permitted to participate at Haughton fairs, and exhibitors from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will also be participating.”

Exhibiting categories have expanded in 2009 to include greater emphasis on ‘design’ dealers and the components of interior design.
