I love masks. I have collected over 100 during my international travels. None of the masks in my collection are very expensive, but they are treasures to me.
However, the 248 masks in the book African Masks-The Barbier -Muller collection are all museum quality. The collection was started in the 1920s by Josef Mueller and continued under the supervision of Jean Paul Barbier. The book is softcover but has a refined feel. Very well made! All of the masks are very unique and every turn of the page reveals another amazing creation. The photography is superb and very detailed information is given with each photo. A map of the various ethnic groups is also included near the beginning. African Masks The Barbier-Mueller Collection will provide hours of enjoyment. This luxurious book is an excellent purchase for anyone interested in art, Africa, masks, or African culture. It will also make a great gift for the African aficionado.

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator
Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life. Most of it was acquired during my travels. Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity. But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell. It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale. The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!
The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow. And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM” the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.
WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?
The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.
NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.
For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at email@example.com.
