Ex. Helene and Philippe LeLoup, New York 1992 and Ex. Christopher and Genevieve McConnell collection - On the LeLoup letterhead, it stated that this figure was guaranteed to be over 100 years old - (and this was in 1992).
“The name of Hélène Leloup is synonymous with works of exceptional quality. As a passionate visionary she was one of very few women in the field of African art from the 1950s when she began. From the 87 catalogues for the exhibitions she produced in her four galleries to the more than fifty museums she sold to, no dealer of the mid to late twentieth century did more to develop an appreciation of African art and culture on an international scale."Jean Fritts, Sotheby's International Consultant, African and Oceanic Art.
