Nicole and John Dintenfass collection, well known and whose pieces have been reproduced in many publications, is based on aesthetics.They have collected with passion, diligence, depth and rigor monumental sculptures and wooden miniatures, from most regions of Africa. Focusing on pieces of the highest artistic quality, this book shares the collectors personal point of view about collecting and offers to readers anecdotes that offer an additional insight of this world to future and present collectors in their search for African art. Collecting is a passion that often leads to intimate inner conversations or to emotional experiences with the objects themselves. Moreover many collectors share their unique experience of joy and appreciation with 20th century artists who also collected African art and who generously imparted advice, suggestions and support in responding to the collector's enthusiasm. Thanks to the multiple beautiful and sensitive photographs for each object the viewer has a chance to form an intimate conversation that goes back to contact with those African master carvers that have strongly influenced modern realism, Cubism and Expressionism.
