Art Antiques and discussion group.
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.

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.

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?
