With almost ninety years experience, Galerie Lemaire is one of the oldest galleries in tribal art in the world. It was founded in Amsterdam in 1933 by M.L.J. Lemaire, the grandfather of the present owner, Finette Lemaire. Galerie Lemaire is known by tribal art lovers all over the world.
Its long history of dealing in tribal art also provides the opportunity to buy from old collections. We are always open to see these collections.
In the gallery is an impressive collection of objects like masks, statues, textiles, jewelry and utensils. On this website a small selection of the objects which can be seen in the gallery. Regularly new objects are placed on the website.
Every year, on the last weekend of October, the church De Duif on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam is the extraordinary setting for the TAF where dealers exhibit their best objects from Africa, Asia, Oceania and South America. The range of objects varies from African masks, statues, jewellery and textiles from Asia, to wickerwork, shields and ancestor statues from Oceania. These and other enchanting works of art can be found in all price categories.
Finette Lemaire is the driving force behind this internationally known event, which takes place every last weekend of October in De Duif in Amsterdam.
