Auction Details

Ethnographic & Tribal Art

The idea for this auction originated from looking at world art and the aesthetic differences between various cultures. It’s easy to forget that everything we consider ancient today was once contemporary. Made for trade or to serve a utilitarian purpose, the ethnographic and tribal objects in this auction were created to give craftsmen the opportunity to express their emotions and experiences through art. The desire to understand what these objects were can often eclipse what they are and what they can represent to us today. This auction features over 300 lots from African, Oceanic, and Pre-Columbian cultures that represent the contemporary art of their time. Whether an antiquarian, designer, or simply an art lover, this sale has something suitable for you.
