Virginia Museum of Fine Arts acquires significant African art

BY CLARKE BUSTARD TIMES-DISPATCH

...The museum's trustees also approved a third set of purchases in a gift-purchase agreement with Robert and Nancy Nooter of Washington, who are among this country's leading private collectors of African art.

Nineteen objects from Mali, Nigeria and Benin are in the latest set acquired by the museum.

A figure from the Jukun, a people inhabiting eastern Nigeria, is a major addition to the collection, said African art curator Richard Woodward. "With this work, [the museum] will have one of only a few African collections in America with a major work from the Jukun culture."

The Jukun figure and 37 more figures, masks, vessels and other objects from West Africa were purchased with $289,000 from the Williams Fund....

...The VMFA trustees also approved the third set of four purchases for its African collection in a continuation of a gift-purchase agreement with Robert and Nancy Nooter of Washington, D.C., who have assembled what Richard Woodward, VMFA's African art curator, calls "one of the most distinguished private collections of African art in the United States."

Assembled during the past 40 years, the Nooters' holdings "are noteworthy for both their brilliant aesthetic quality and the breadth of their representation of the full diversity of the African continent, including rare works from eastern and southern Africa," Woodward says.

The 19 objects in this set include a significant group of works from Mali, along with objects from key cultures from coastal West Africa and from the neighboring Fon and Yoruba cultures of Nigeria and the Republic of Benin.

"A further major addition is a rare figure from the Jukun culture of eastern Nigeria," Woodward says. Made of wood, the figure stands 24½ inches tall. "With this work, VMFA will have one of only a few African collections in America with a major work from the Jukun culture."

The African purchases were also made through the museum's Adolph D. and Wilkins C. Williams Fund.
