Intimate Conversations: African Minatures

Hachette-Abrams

9788874397747

John and Nicole Dintenfass have long collected African art—with passion, diligence, depth, and rigor. Here, they share part of their collection: wooden miniatures, including statuettes, masks, and pulleys, none more than 11 inches high. Chosen primarily for aesthetic reasons, these works are shown in stunning new photographs, many pictured from multiple angles. In the text, the Dintenfasses discuss their history as collectors, sharing the almost personal relationship collectors develop with their most treasured pieces. Through their collection, they have found a connection both to African master carvers and to the creators of modern Western art, who were strongly influenced by African works.
