Collection Marceau Rivière - Paris June 19th
In the early 1960s, it was love at first sight between the African continent and expert and art lover Marceau Rivière. His collection is one of the most complete and striking about african art. Through his instinctive approach to works and his artistic sensibility, Marceau Rivière has gathered in a half century of research a collection of works bringing together major stylistic corpuses from sub-Saharan Africa.
The 250 or so works that will be dispersed in Paris on June 19, recall above all that, for the last decades Marceau Rivière has been one of the most fervent defenders of African Art; an art he has never ceased to put on the front of the stage and to transmit to the greatest number.
