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

After World War II he was hired at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to be its first Curator of Modern and Contemporary art in 1946. He taught as a visiting professor at the University of Southern California before attending the University of Perugia and Istituto Meschini, Rome, the latter, 1951-1952. In 1954 he relinquished his position at Los Angeles to become the Director of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. He was appointed associate director of the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC, underWilliam R. Valentiner. At Valentiner's death in 1958 he became director. In 1960 Byrnes was named director of the New Orleans Museum of Art. In 1972 he returned to California to direct the Newport Harbor Museum in Newport Beach, CA. He concluded his tenure there in 1975 and in 1978 founded an art consulting firm. He was named an emeritus director of the New Orleans Museum in 1989. In 2003 Byrnes was featured on a panel sponsored by the Getty Research Institute on art of the 1940s in Los information:Size: 18.75" tall Condition: Figure has old age splits.
