Kunstauktionshaus Zemanek-Muenster

385 Followers
The fascination with tribal art lies in its extraordinary expressiveness and its influence on modern art. While anthropologists place ritual functions in the foreground, art collectors and art lovers focus on aesthetic appeal and the art historical influence. Both are offered in our diverse tribal art auctions. Since 1992, the Wurzburg based 'Kunstauktionshaus Zemanek-Muenster' has been exclusively auctioning antique art from Africa, Australia, Asia, Oceania and The Americas, world-class art objects, such as masks and sculptures, as well as ritual objects, ceramics, primitive money and jewellery. Zemanek-Muenster is considered worldwide as a specialist in non-European tribal art. Together with Paris, Brussels, London and New York, it is today, with its headquarters in Wurzburg, recognised as an international centre for tribal art in Europe and overseas that is outside the major art centres, but still incredibly well connected. Dr. David Zemanek, expert and internationally renowned in the tribal art market has been working intensively with tribal art since he was 12 years old. He graduated at high school, studied ethnology and finally received his doctorate in 2016 with the subject "Trade in African art after 1945". In what seems like a logical consequence, he owes not least to his parents' auction house that evolved from the European art market in the 1970s to tribal art specialists. The numbers speak for themselves. 2,000 carefully selected works in four auctions per annum, many of which are from old private collections. This is only a small part when compared with the thousands of objects that we have reviewed over previous years. As the only auction house that specialises in tribal art, we also provide guarantees for the authenticity and originality of the works on offer. We take our time with tribal art. Not only for the careful research of the artworks. Whether on-site or at the auction house, that is in a former boilermakers workshop with a skylight roof, surrounded by all the works of art and an extensive library, we take time for our customers and collectors, no matter how much experience they have. Building a successful collection cannot be done in passing but is a lengthy process of training the eye. There isn't a fast-food recipe for this. We give you time. Whether for consultations, estimates, assessments, or if you want to dissolve an estate. Our team of experts in Wurzburg, as well as our representatives in Antwerp and New York, are ready to support you with their knowledge and expertise. The Kunstauktionshaus Zemanek-Muenster has been listed in the 'Bundesverband deutscher Kunstversteigerer e.V. (BdK)' since 2006. It is a small select circle, for leading German art auction houses that have been chosen on recommendation. Collectors and dealers worldwide appreciate the Kunsthaus for it's professional competence, seriousness, thoroughness and reliability. Auctions Tribal art auctions will be hold three times a year at the auction house in Wurzburg. Well-founded expert and market knowledge as well as an international customers clientele, all this has enabled us to realise very good auction results. In our tribal art auctions, you get the opportunity of disposing your collection or even just individual pieces in an environment that will receive the attention it deserves. High-quality catalogues, professional descriptions including a multiplicity of international marketing measures - and not least the presentation in our previews - are guaranteeing the best possible publicity and price. As tribal art specialist we have placed objects in many museums and private collections in the past. Representatives Since 2011 Zemanek-Muenster is expanding its international presence. Its first overseas Departement for Pre-Columbian and Classical Art is also based in New York at the Upper East Side. Howard Nowes a leading New York City dealer with education in History of Art could be engaged as a further expert and consultant in the appraisals and pricing of Pre-Columbian and Tribal Art. He was a charter member and former associate of Sothebys.com and is today a member of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association as well as of the Appraisers Association of America, Inc. [AAA]. Bren Heymans from Antwerp is official consultant and representative for the auction house in Belgium and the Netherlands. He brings with him his expertise for traditional, as well as contemporary non-European art, together with a broad ethnological expertise.

I purchased a pueblo pot that I thought was in good to excellent condition. The pot ended up being one that was broken and glued back together.

I thought it would be difficult buying from another country, especially Germany, but they made it very easy. Definitely would buy from them again.

For being able to enter the digital auction, credit card information was demanded, I think that is quite prone to risks. The packaging was done very carefully, but for 80 Euros from Germany to The Netherlands for a 2 kilo object, this is rather expensive. The object bought was however completely to my satisfaction.

I buy Tribal Art at Zemanek since 2010, and I never had problems with this auction house. For the shipping from Germany toward France, the packaging is perfect. Never an item was broken. If I ask for some additional photos. I always have a response by mail. All is OK with this auction house. Corinne DYKA
