Exhibited Published Pictured In 1968 Museum Catalog, Baule Figure- No Reserve For Sale

Exhibited Published Pictured In 1968 Museum Catalog, Baule Figure- No Reserve

This is an extraordinary opportunity to own a work of art with rock solid provenance and published in an exhibition museum catalog in 1968. This comes from the James Byrnes estate (bio below). Winner of the sale wins not just the Baule figure but ALSO the exhibition catalog New Orleans Collects: African Art (1968) - item 55. As you may know from my other listing, I never make a claim of age I can't document - here is a case where I can comfortably say "mid-20th century."I purchased this Baule figure directly from his executrix who included a photograph of his home showing his extensive collection (including a Dogon Kananga mask I am selling concurrently). The last photos are of James B. Byrnes living room, and other items I am selling or will sell.Provenance:From the collection ofByrnes, James B[ernard]

Date born: February 19, 1917 Date died: August 28, 2011
