A reader was so kind to send me a link to a radio interview (anno 1951) with African art dealer Ladislas Segy; hear it here (15 minutes). How wonderful to hear his voice, talking about his gallery, his background, why he got into African art, etc. Sixty-four years later, one can argue about the quality of the objects he sold in his gallery, but a pioneer in the popularization of African art he certainly was.
