Galerie Noir d'Ivoire
For over 35 years, Galerie Noir d’Ivoire has shown antique African objects, meticulously and passionately selected by Yasmina Chenoufi, a member of the Compagnie nationale des experts (CNE). In this time, she has organized many widely recognized exhibitions in her 6th arrondissement gallery. A collection is a monument built, registering a personal act in time, which reveals the author. Here everything is surprise, and radiant emotion, contrary to a calculation.
Jacques Germain never looked back having taken the decision to devote his career to the art of sub-Saharan Africa. His in-depth knowledge of historical objects from this region enabled him from the start to respond to the interest shown by private collectors and museums alike, and he has helped consolidate numerous renowned collections. He is as sensitive to the ethnographical context of tribal art as to its aesthetic and he maintains strong relationships with world-specialists on African art and with numerous curators in Europe and North America.
Michael Hamson Oceanic Art
Michael Hamson started his career as a field collector, making 46 trips into the most remote areas of New Guinea. He has supplemented this experience with Master’s degree in Oceanic and African art history from the University of California at Santa Barbara providing an academic and aesthetic foundation. In the last five years Michael has focused exclusively on sourcing his material from old collections in the US, Europe and Australia. He now uses the energy once devoted to field collecting to crisscross the globe aggressively hunting for the oldest and most beautiful Oceanic art fresh to the market.
Collecting valuable objects uniquely rewards owners with beauty, history, personal satisfaction, and much more. Unfortunately new collectors often overpay and become disillusioned, while inexperienced owners and heirs routinely receive too little when selling. For collecting to become a more credible and widespread vehicle for wealth creation, the playing field between experts and novices must be leveled. At Heritage Auctions, we believe information can and should be available to all, transactions made more transparent, trading friction reduced and the learning curve made less steep and less expensive for new collectors and sellers.
After having opened a stand at the St. Ouen flea market in 2005, Charles-Wesley Hourdé started a gallery specializing in African, Oceanic, and Pre-Columbian art located in Saint Germain-des–Prés in 2006, at the same time that the Musée du Quai Branly opened. He produced a number of exhibitions in this gallery and participated in many international fairs and events. In the years that followed, he gained the experience that led him to join Christie’s in 2010. Hired first as a specialist and subsequently appointed director of sales, he contributed to the tribal art department’s extensive development. An independent member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts since 2015, Charles-Wesley Hourdé now devotes himself to finding specific artworks for clients, to consulting work, and to research.
Hunt fine Arts opened its doors in 2015 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Founder and director Tim Hunt began his career at Christie's in London (1980-1986), where he worked alongside Hermione Waterfield and William Fagg in the Tribal Art department. He subsequently moved to New York to work for The Andy Warhol Foundation (1987-2014), where he worked primarily as an "in-house" dealer selling works from the artist's estate on behalf of the Foundation. He has these combined these areas of expertise in his presentations at the gallery, exhibiting a mix of traditional arts from Africa, the Pacific, Asia and the Americas, alongside modern and contemporary art.
