IFPDA Mission

For over twenty-five years, the International Fine Print Dealers Association has upheld the highest professional standards of quality and ethics, while promoting prints as original works of art nationally and internationally to generations of collectors, curators, and art enthusiasts. Now with over 160 members in thirteen countries, the IFPDA is a worldwide community of leading expert dealers and renowned editions publishers who represent the full range of specialties within the field.

Each year, the Association sponsors the IFPDA Print Fair in New York City, the largest and most celebrated art fair dedicated to fine prints.

Through its Programs, the IFPDA presents lectures and symposia about prints and printmaking from its origins to contemporary practice. The Annual IFPDA Book Award honors excellence in recently published books or catalogues in the field of fine prints and encourages original research, scholarship and the discussion of new ideas. Members of the Association also provide expert assistance to law enforcement agencies in their investigations of fraudulent or stolen art works. View our Code of Ethics.

The IFPDA is proud to be a member of CINOA: Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art. Learn more about CINOA at www.cinoa.org.
