New York—This Winter, Dori and Daniel Rootenberg, from Jacaranda Gallery, are presenting the first in a series of online exhibitions, featuring a beautiful selection of artworks from the Faith-Dorian and Martin Wright collection.

The Wrights, considered pioneers in the field of Oceanic art collecting, with pieces from their collection now kept at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, also acquired important artworks from Africa and Native America.

Faith-Dorian Wright (1934-2006) was an accomplished artist, introduced to the arts of Africa already in the 1950s by her art teachers.

Together with her husband Martin Wright (1930-2018), they built their collection mainly in the 1960s and 1970s, most of their early acquisitions coming from the famous New York dealer John J. Klejman.
