Close
Jean-Baptiste Bacquart holds degrees in art history and archaeology from the Sorbonne and the Ecole du Louvre. After having been the director of the tribal art department at Sotheby’s, London, he opened his own gallery at 27, rue de Seine in Paris. He is also a consultant for museums and international collectors. His interest in tribal art began with an encounter with a Rarotonga staff god, an object shrouded in mystery but which also had a ritual function, a combination that was to become an important criterion for him. His book L’art tribal d’Afrique noire (Thames and Hudson) has been a major success with collectors and is now in its fourth printing.
