Jacques Germain never looked back having taken the decision to devote his career to the art of sub-Saharan Africa. His in-depth knowledge of historical objects from this region enabled him from the start to respond to the interest shown by private collectors and museums alike, and he has helped consolidate numerous renowned collections. He is as sensitive to the ethnographical context of tribal art as to its aesthetic and he maintains strong relationships with world-specialists on African art and with numerous curators in Europe and North America.
