African Art – objects of great expressivness

The tribal art auction house Zemanek-Münster in Würzburg (est. 1978) specializes in fine tribal art. They have been involved in African art since the beginning of the nineties and have become Europe's only auction house specializing exclusively in non-European art. Serious collectors of high-quality, non-European tribal art from Africa, Australia, Oceania, and Asia as well as for Pre-Columbian, masks, sculptures, ritual objects, ceramics and textiles should start and end their search here.

The fascination – especially for African masks and sculptures - arises from their extraordinary and remarkable expressiveness. While ethnologists appreciate their ritual function, the art collector is focused on their aesthetic qualities. For both, the tribal art auction house holds auctions four times a year, featuring a variety of tribal art objects, especially works of the Luba, Baule, Lobi, Senufo, Songye, Fang and Punu tribes, as well as works from Oceania for the international market.

Since January 2011 Zemanek-Münster’s Pre-Columbian and Classical Art Department is now also based in New York. With expert Howard Nowes at the Upper East Side a long-desired co-operation is become perfect.

The company is now widely regarded for its professional qualifications, integrity, reliability and fairness in dealing with collectors and consignors in Europe and the United States over the past 20 years. Zemanek-Münster is the only auction house in tribal art that guarantee the authenticity and originality of their objects. These standards have qualified the auction house for admission to the Association of German Art Auctioneers (Bundesverband deutscher Kunstversteigerer or BDK) in April 2007.

For several years Zemanek-Münster has been represented with its associated Gallery for non-European Art at international tribal art shows, like the Tribal & Textile Art Shows in San Francisco and New York. Zemanek-Münster is also present in Maastricht at the tribal art exhibition "Art from another world" – a brand-new and prosperous show for non-European tribal art, that started for the first time in March 2011.
