Masterworks of African Art

    New York – Christie’s announces the sale Timeless: Masterworks of African Art will take place on May 19 in New York. This exceptional sale features twelve Masterworks of African Art and the exhibition and auction will coincide with Christie’s 20th Century Week sales. Celebrating the diversity of form and innovation of African artistry, from the West coast, to Central and to South Africa, these rare works are fresh to the market and maintain distinguished provenance, which is further enhanced by their exhibition histories and published literature.

    Susan Kloman, International Specialist, Head of Department, comments, “Timeless is a selection of twelve important works of traditional African art. Each work of art represented in this sale is powerfully resonant with subjects, which unite us as human – visions of prosperity, love, power, fear and order. From incarnations of gods, supreme beings and oracles to works of virtuosity and idealized beauty, this presentation is highly rich and was brought together not only to present top classical examples, in addition to the Dogon maternity, such as the Bédiat-Huston Baule mask and Matisse Fang Figure, but foremost works of innovation rarely seen on the market – such as the Grebo mask, the Pindi dancing figure, the Mfumte figure and the Tsonga female figure from South Africa.”
