Podemos omitir o termo 'africano' e dizer apenas 'artista'?

Publicado18 Out 2013

In 2010, Giles Peppiatt, director of African art at British auction house Bonhams made a revelatory assertion on the art market. “Look at the other markets — no one buys a van Gogh because he’s Dutch or because the buyer’s Dutch. It doesn’t matter where the artist was born or what nationality he was. But I think with African art it still does matter. It hasn’t yet broken into the international market.”  Peppiatt’s comment followed Bonhams March 2010 auction in New York. The sale presented modern and contemporary art from Africa as a standalone auction, the first of its kind in New York.
