Mid-April 2007 newsletter 

KuyuDear African Art lover,

It has been a while that I have emailed you, but everything is fine. The Tribal Art market is still alive and kicking, and I have never seen so many objects appearing on the market.

For this edition I want to show you a Kuyu (44 cm) I found that has many similarities to the one once owned by Vérité that you can see in the Tribal Arts of Africa on page 119.
 
I am preparing my exhibition in Brussels from 6-10 June 2007 that will be in a new location.

Brussels is certainly worth booking a ticket to this year, with many events and exhibitions at the same moment, certainly the important Willy Mestach exhibition is a must see.
 
Those interested in Benin Art should attend the symposium in Vienna. 

I also have some Museum news for you and a report on stolen items.

David Norden

Ebay_rap from the discussion group

Loud auctioneers and whispering gallierists have a poor or restricted vocabulary compared to the one used by some E-Bay dealers who, for promoting an object which is supposed to be "collectable" /"collectors quality" or "museum quality", use adjectives with absolutely "no reserve". 

But let's take the good side of it: this avalanche of adjectives is, for a non-english speaker, an excellent-wonderful-interesting & exceptional opportunity to refine one's knowledge in the english vocabulary - and, for the non-marketing-hooked-english-speaker, a source of amusement (hopefully)..
