In 2008 Mr. Claude Aguttes decides to start the adventure and get started in the First Arts domain with the sale of the 14th of November in 2008, gathering Mr. Loewenguth objects, collected in Gabon between 1922 and 1930. A year later he takes the decision to sell the collection Devez-Bergogne.
This sector is limited and a bet for the future.
In 2014, the department is back with the 6th of October 2014’s sale
of Jean-Jacques Mandel collection. With an anthropologist formation, he furrowed Africa and other continents, in order to collect for more than 30 years voodoo objects and ethnopsychiatry which some of them were presented in the Quai Branly Museum during « Les Maîtres du désordre »’s exposition in 2012.
Two rare masks, Gouro and Gouro-Bété, from the Daloa region in Ivory Coast, crushed their estimations and both totalised near 73 000 euros and joined prestigious europeans collections.
