Entwistle was founded more than forty years ago by Lance Entwistle and Roberta Entwistle, major dealers in the tribal art field. First established in London and then opening a location in Paris in 2005, we work with major international museums and well-known private collectors to put together some of the most important collections in this field. Entwistle’s success has always been founded in a rigorous selection of objects exercised in conjunction with thorough academic research. We have faith in this approach and believe that it and our sense of aesthetic appreciation will continue to ensure our position of leadership in the tribal art market of the 21st century. <br> Gallery in London: 144 New Bond Street, London W1S 2TR, United Kingdom <br> info@entwistlegallery.com, Tel.: +44 20 7499 6969, Mob.: +44 77 68 838870
