Good to read that preeminent tribal art

Good to read that preeminent tribal art dealers like one of UK’s best Gordon Reece knows that there is still art in Africa to be discovered. “Despite what many collectors and dealers will tell you, good work can still be found in Africa itself. Mostly these objects are not being used for their original purpose or in their original environments. There are a considerable number of expats, or colonial families, resident for two or more generations, who have collected pieces which they treasure. Also some tribal elders have pieces from their forebears that they still hold dear. As a collector of tribal art the secret is to look everywhere. For me, the quest to find academically interesting, undiscovered and diverse objects is key.” Read more at: http://www.antique-collecting.co.uk/how-to-start-a-tribal-art-collection/
