Mission
The International Fine Print Dealers Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the appreciation for prints as works of art conceived by the artist to be realized in this form. Much like sculpture, a print is an original work of art that can exist as a multiple, rather than a copy of a work in another medium.
Now with more than over 160 members in thirteen countries, members of the IFPDA reflect a worldwide community of expert art dealers from old master to contemporary and editions publishers of internationally renowned contemporary artists.
Through its network, online presence, and public programs, the IFPDA is committed to fostering knowledge and stimulating discussion about collecting prints in the public sphere as well as a global art community interested in prints. The IFPDA Print Fair, held annually in New York City, is the largest and most celebrated art fair dedicated to the artistic medium of printmaking. Through its charitable Foundation, the IFPDA advances research, education, and dialogue about works on paper. The IFPDA Book Award honors scholarly excellence and original research.
The IFPDA is a member of CINOA: Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art, the global association of art and antique dealer associations whose members share a commitment to reputable standards of quality, expertise and integrity.
