The International Foundation for Fine and Decorative Arts (iffda) is an organisation based in Zurich, Switzerland and operating globally.
The vision of iffda is twofold: to provide education for the general public concerning the world’s highest quality fine and decorative art revealing the great artistry and skill used in their creation and highlighting their art historical significance. iffda locates such works for purchase by select collectors and institutions.
iffda has a specialised staff as well as a network of working specialists worldwide – all having unique expertise within Art and Cultural History and years of experience of public presentation of the fine arts in exhibitions, galleries, and museums.
iffda was created based on global interest in fine and decorative arts as cultural expression and objects of collections, both public and private. iffda supports these interests through education, exhibition, and the sourcing of works for collectors and institutions.
iffda is associated with major museums and foundations as well as significant collectors and art specialists including curators, conservators, designers, art historians, and scientific technicians in order to provide a wide range of services.
iffda and its staff have been involved in significant projects related to fine and decorative art collections including, most recently, those of Jackson Pollock and René Lalique. These projects included the exhibition of works at the Kunst Museum Winterthur and consultation concerning education and display with Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.
iffda is available for consultation with those who are interested in high quality fine and decorative art for collection and display.
iffda, as part of their goal to bring cultural to a wider public, brings together treasured
cultural icons and the most experienced and inspired teams to produce cultural presentations of international scope.
iffda’s most recent cultural project is a major theatre show of the Tintin Moon stories co-
produced with Moulinsart.
In November 2022, IFFDA in cooperation with Tintinimaginatio, the Griffith Institute, and the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation in Cairo presented an exhibition at the NMEC celebrating the new album of the Tintin Adventure: Cigars of the Pharaoh. It was timed to coincide with the centenary of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. View more stories about the exhibition below:
