Master first-generation Zimbabwean sculptor Henry Munyaradzi, the most sought-after name in the Shona sculpture movement

Henry Munyaradzi


Price reduced from £8,500!

This sculpture is being advertised for sale on behalf of a private collector.

This piece was originally bought directly from Henry by the respected Matombo Gallery of Harare, Zimbabwe.

Matombo exported it to the USA for Henry Munyaradzi’s solo exhibition at Nicole Gallery in Chicago in January 1991. It was subsequently exhibited by Stark Gallery and Stone Spirit Orchard in Connecticut, USA (1991-1993) and the Atlanta University Exhibition (1994).

It was later (2002) purchased by a private collector and brought to the UK. It is now offered for sale by this collector through Guruve.

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.

The piece is in the UK and will be shipped from there; P&P at the buyers expense.
