African, Oceanic & Pre-Columbian Art

Bonhams African, Oceanic and Pre-Columbian Art department offers a wide range of unique, high-quality works of art from Sub-Saharan Africa, Polynesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, Australia, Indonesia and from Central and South America. Our auctions include ceremonial and prestigious works of art created for the elite as well as utilitarian and specialised items for daily use within the local culture.

Our public exhibitions and auctions take place twice a year in the spring and fall in New York. A fully-illustrated catalogue with scholarly notes, available both in print and online, accompanies each sale and is distributed to our network of international buyers, ranging from beginners to seasoned private collectors, dealers and museums. We welcome and encourage new collectors to inquire and ask questions at any time.
