African Art At Auction | Joe Pollitt Collection

Today, we making HISTORY - African Art aligns itself and it's influence of all things Modern thanks to the Joe Pollitt Collection being presented at Lots Road, Chelsea, London this coming weekend. The Auction comes up on Sunday but regardless of the outcome we are witnesses to a shift in global thinking about Africa, Art and Modernity.

Comment from Joe Pollitt

"I have, for the longest time, wanted to achieve this in my lifetime, to make that connection of European Modernity and the importance and influence of Africa and with the assistance of Bob Hayton at Lots Road Auction we have achieved the impossible. .This Sale will go down in the history of African Art and will certainly be the Best Tribal Art Sale of all time."
