Galerie Lemaire

Galerie Lemaire was founded around 1933 by M.L.J. Lemaire, the grandfather of the present owner, Finette Lemaire. He was one of the first dealers in Tribal Art in Amsterdam. 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.

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.
