Expired: A collection of early Celts, Hand Axes, and Projectile Points
Thomas Murray will be offering his personal, highly selected collection of ancient stone and bronze celts, axes, projectile points, scrapers and other tools from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Age from around the world. Formed over a 35-year period, this grouping includes examples from the Sahara to Papua New Guinea, Alaska to New Zealand, with ancient Indonesia and Mainland Southeast Asia also strongly represented. Many of these stone artifacts were made for ritual purposes, hence their great beauty. Some of the stone objects go back to more than150 thousand years, but most would be located on a timeline from 10, 000 BC to 200 AD. Transitions have been of particular interest to the collector: for example, from Stone Age to Bronze Age and therefore early metal tools of classical form are also included in this collection. There are 185 pieces in the collection, which is being offered as a whole.

Expired: Arts from Upper Volta
The arts of the Volta River regions are still relatively little known as old sculptures are very rare. This exhibition, made up of about fifteen masks, statues and utilitarian objects from Mossi, Lobi, Bobo, Gurunsi, Bwa and Nuna cultures promises many discoveries to interested collectors. This art seduces with its variety, its often geometric and abstract forms, and the richness of its colors, with brown, red and white predominating. A feast for the eyes and for the spirit!

For the September 2017 Parcours des Mondes, Galerie Lucas Ratton is showing an ensemble of Bambara works. This Malian ethnic group has produced a great diversity of objects, and its exceptionally rich sculptural traditions resonate with a correspondingly wide variety of rituals.

Expired: Emotion of forms: African plastic and dynamics
Subsaharian art is based on the abstraction of geometric shapes, hence inducing an indefinite rhythm, an aesthetic emotion devoid of any logic. An indissociable beauty emerges from the juxtaposition of bizarre shapes where disproportion, deformation, and sometimes exagération of the sculpted volumes match a subtle harmony, stimulating emotion and imagination. This thematic display of masks and small effigies will be guided by the notions of emotional attraction, aesthetic coherence and subjectivity of the taste. Galerie Éric Hertault will exhibit at 3, rue Visconti, during Parcours des mondes 2017. For more info please visit: http://eric-hertault.com.
