Intimate conversations (N° 21028) Deposit sale

Over 130 works from the collection assembled by Drs. Nicole and John Dintenfass over fifty years.
The Dintenfass Collection serves as a model and inspiration for both beginning and seasoned collectors. An alternative approach to collecting that goes beyond buying from dealers. A richly illustrated book that traces the origin of a collector's interest in African art and analyzes the psychological aspects that drive collecting passions.
The Nicole and John Dintenfass collection is well known and aesthetically based, and the works have been reproduced in numerous publications. They have collected with passion, diligence, depth and rigor monumental sculptures and wooden miniatures from most parts of Africa.
Focusing on pieces of the highest artistic quality, this book shares the collectors' personal perspective on collecting and offers anecdotes that provide additional insight into this world for future and current collectors in their search for African art.
Collecting is a passion that often leads to intimate inner conversations or emotional experiences with the objects themselves. In addition, many collectors share their unique experience of joy and appreciation with twentieth century artists who also collected African art and who have generously given advice, suggestions and support in responding to the collectors' enthusiasm.
