SPLENDORS features an exquisite selection of African and Oceanic art from a princely collection. Build by a gentleman-collector with an incredible eye for quality, this group truly celebrates the art we love so much. SPLENDORS as well features an exceptional private collection of North West Coast art from British Colombia. This unique group of about twenty works took the collector 30 years to assemble and brings together masterpieces from the Haida, Tlingit and neighboring peoples. All objects were meticulously selected and can be considered to be among the best of their kind. It’s a type of collection that only appears on the market once every decade and a not to be missed event. Additionally, we’ll be presenting a select group of fresh-to-the market discoveries, including several objects formerly in the collection of Pierre Matisse among which a previously unknown Ambete statue. I hope to welcome you in Paris for the preview later this month. To match the quality of the objects, we have taken their presentation to a next level, so it surely will be worth a visit. As always, don’t be a stranger and feel free to contact me if I can be of any service.
