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

Henry Munyaradzi


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

This piece comes with meticulous provenance. It was bought from Henry, the most sought-after name of the Shona sculpture movement, in 1990 by Matombo Gallery in Harare, and was taken by them to the USA for an exhibition.

It was shown in at least four exhibitions in 1991 – 1994, including a solo exhibition of Henry’s work at Nicole Gallery in Chicago in 1991. After its tour of America, it stayed with Nicole Gallery until 2011 when it was acquired by a private collection.

It comes with a Matombo Gallery certificate of authenticity and ours. It is signed on the base.

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.
