Two years ago, homeowners near Toulouse, France, wanted to fix their leaky ceiling. 

In order to get the spot of the problem, they had to break open a sealed door in their attic. 

Behind the door, they found a roughly five-foot by six-foot painting, which appeared to have been resting there for many, many years.

The NYC-based gallery The Hole has announced participation featuring a two-person booth [Booth C7] in the PRIME section of Art Brussels 2016.

The origins of today's ART COLOGNE as a trade fair for classic modern art, post-war art and contemporary art go back to the year 1967. 

Kunstmarkt Köln ’67 was launched on 15 September 1967 in a historic Cologne building – the Gürzenich. 

In medieval times it served as an arena for festivities, banquets and dances. Later, it served as a merchants' hall.

The launch of the Kunstmarkt Köln ’67 was to have a profound impact on the international art market.
