  1. Süddeutsche Zeitung, March 2018

    Maastricht steht für Sammeln auf höchstem Niveau. Mit der Sektion "Tefaf Paper" sucht man seit ein paar Jahren auch ein jüngeres Publikum anzusprechen. Wie lohnend eine Tour über das Gelände sein kann, zeigt exemplarisch der Stand von Emanuel von Baeyer aus London. Bei ihm wäre die schöne Rötelzeichnung eines Ganymed von Hans von Marées für 28 000 Euro zu haben und eine rätselhafte Federzeichnung von Max Klinger, "Mädchen und Tod" für 42 000 Euro. Geschätzte 12 000 bis 30 000 Objekte hat das aus 189 Spezialisten bestehende, seiner Strenge wegen gefürchtete Vetting-Team im Vorfeld der Messe nach allen Regeln der Zunft auf Echtheit untersucht. Besucher können es dank ihrer Vorarbeit entspannter angehen.

    FIVE WORKS FOR €5,000 AND UNDER... €3,200: The London dealer Emanuel von Baeyer will show a number of works on paper by the German artist Martin Assig from a series he began in 2009. In the St Paul’s series, made in tribute to the artist Paul Klee, Assig deals with basic and existential themes such as love, death and how people relate to each other and the world. Made using pigments and beeswax, this colourful work, St Paul #316 (2013) was featured in a retrospective of Assig’s work that opened at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam in 2015. '[His] work is very popular among museum curators and is included in many German, Swiss, French, Dutch, English and American collections,' Von Baeyer says.

Hans Christian Andersen, Self-portrait (1859) This is a black painted silhouette, a gift left for someone whose hospitality he had enjoyed on his constant travels. He often painted these little self-portraits as a thank you. You don’t usually see them on the open market.

    Continue down Aisle A and turn left at the end. Take another left into Aisle B and look for the booth of London dealer Emanuel von Baeyer. The treasure everyone has been talking about this year is not a print but a drawn self-portrait by one of the all-time greatest printmakers, Hendrick Goltzius. This tiny roundel on vellum is rendered in a complex combination of metal point, black and red chalk and watercolor with white heightening. It is one of only seven known drawn self-portraits by Goltzius and is thought to be the study for the image of the artist that appears in his 1594 engraving of the Circumcision of Christ. The drawing shows a confident artist at the height of his powers with a sweet expression in his light blue eyes. Von Baeyer's ensemble includes a remarkable woodcut after Coornhert with an unusual subject, Tobias being Blinded by Sparrows Droppings (c. 1550), as well as post-war prints by Georg Baselitz and Robert Morris.

Emanuel von Baeyer also appears regularly in the following publications:
