Sidney and Bernice Clyman began their long collecting adventure as clients of the renowned dealer Gaston de Havenon in the early 1970s when the market for collecting African Art emerged in America. In over half a century of collecting, the couple assembled a small but superb group of masterpiece-caliber examples of the major sculptural styles of sub-Saharan Africa. Through the influence of visionary gallerist Allan Stone and the pioneering African-American dealer, Jazz musician and painter Merton D. Simpson, the Clymans delighted in pairing abstract 20th century art with their African collection. Featuring 33 sculptures, African Art from the Collection of Sidney and Bernice Clyman is one of the finest collections of African Art in the world and one of the last remaining collections from the generation of postwar collecting in the US during the 1960s and 70s.
