The CoBrA Movement, African & Oceanic Art and the Z Collection

Launch Slideshow

Sotheby’s upcoming sale, Z Collection in Paris on 12 December, will feature an impressive selection of Contemporary and African art assembled by an anonymous collector, Z. In the aftermath of World War II, Z befriended the artists responsible for a blossoming artistic movement known as CoBrA. From such artists including Karel Appel, Christian Dotremont, Pierre Alechinsky and Asger Jorn, Z acquired many of the collection’s most significant works.
