Dear Reader,

This month, I have put  www.African-Antiques.com in some summer clothes, 
 
The month of June has been very active, with seven auctions in Paris and several records broken, like the Lega Ivory that sold in Paris for two and a half million Euros. Fine quality, good provenance and fresh pieces on the markets are still the rules of the game for fetching high prices.

Ivoire Lega Bella Hein 

 Lega Lukungu Lega Ivory, 20 cm high, sold for 2.4 Million EUROS 


Bruneaf had more dealers and visitors than ever. Also contemporary art now gets attention and increased public interest expressed itself in high prices paid for work by contemporary African Artists like Chéri Samba.
 
Tell me if you bought some treasures that you want to share in the discussion group with it's 887 members and nearly 11,000 past messages. Or, if you speak French, join Antiques Africaine (125 members) and show us the favorite antique pieces in your collection.
 
I made my blog public at

In July I invite you to go to Monaco to see 250 African masterpieces from ancient times to the present.  
 
Enjoy the sun, enjoy the reading...

African artifacts The lost art . Sacred objects once imbued with spiritual and cultural meaning are now being mass-produced across Africa and sold to tourists. Have traditional artworks lost their significance as they gain monetary value? Do tourists still believe that these African knick-knacks are products of cultural expression? What makes an African artifact authentic?   http://users.telenet.be/african-shop/african_artefacts.htm

Vibrant Africans dazzle across Europe
When an exhibition of African art and design travels from the Hayward Gallery to the Centre Pompidou, and African designers win coveted space at Milan's Salone del Mobile, and Selfridges devotes a window display to Afro-chic, you know you are witnessing a trend. In London, the rising influence of Africa, not only in the worlds of art and fashion but also in interior design, has manifested itself in a series of events billed as Africa 05.

Chéri Samba - L'espoir fait vivreL’Afrique est un scandale, L’Afrique en art, maintenant . Peut-il exister un art africain ? 
C’est-à-dire un art d’aujourd’hui qui ne soit pas soumis aux grilles de lecture appliquées au continent le plus en souffrance de notre temps? Une création contemporaine. Question posée et réponses multiples.
 
En tous les cas pour Chéri Samba la question ne se pose pas car
