PARIS – Piasa will hold its Africa & Modern & Contemporary Art sale on May 19. For the first time in the context of a contemporary African art sale in Paris, this auction will present the work of two major African American artists: Beauford Delaney, the great African American painter of the post-war period, and Kehinde Wiley, a rising figure on the other side of the Atlantic who, among other achievements, painted the famous portrait of American President Barack Obama that hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

This clock, which has hands that seem to float magically in the dial, will make its auction debut. It has not appeared on the market since its creation by the Cartier Paris workshops.
