A charming ‘Henry’ of a little lion cub resting.
This sculpture is being advertised for sale on behalf of a private collector.
This piece was originally bought directly from Henry, the most sought-after name of the Shona sculpture movement, in 1989 by the respected Matombo Gallery of Harare, Zimbabwe.
Matombo exported it to the UK for the London Art Fair in 1990. It was exhibited again (on Matombo’s behalf) at Exoticus Gallery, Knightsbridge from 1993-1995, until sold to a private collector. It is now available for sale through Guruve on behalf of that collector.
It is in immaculate condition. It is signed on the base. Full Matombo paperwork accompanies the piece.
Beware of less scrupulous galleries than ourselves selling non-authentic ‘Henrys’. Detailed provenance gives the collector great piece of mind when investing in major artworks, and this piece is well supported.
This piece is in the UK and will be shipped from there; P&P at buyer’s expense.
