Bonhams African, Oceanic and Pre-Columbian Art department offers a wide range of unique and traditional works of art from sub-Saharan Africa, the islands in the Pacific and from Central and South America. Objects include ceremonial and religious items created for the elite as well as utilitarian and specialised items for daily use within the culture. Our public exhibitions and auctions take place twice a year in the spring and fall in Los Angeles. A fully-illustrated catalogue with scholarly notes accompanies each sale and is available both in print and online.
Whether a single work of art or an entire collection, Bonhams provides complimentary valuations for auction and provides the most professional and prompt service to both buyers and sellers. We are pleased to arrange a confidential on-site visit at your home or business for added security, confidentiality and convenience.
