Close

After having opened a stand at the St. Ouen flea market in 2005, Charles-Wesley Hourdé started a gallery specializing in African, Oceanic, and Pre-Columbian art located in Saint Germain-des–Prés in 2006, at the same time that the Musée du Quai Branly opened. He produced a number of exhibitions in this gallery and participated in many international fairs and events. In the years that followed, he gained the experience that led him to join Christie’s in 2010. Hired first as a specialist and subsequently appointed director of sales, he contributed to the tribal art department’s extensive development. An independent member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts since 2015, Charles-Wesley Hourdé now devotes himself to finding specific artworks for clients, to consulting work, and to research.
