One very usefull tool I use to authenticate African Art is the Yale-Van Rijn Photographic Archive.
This is the largest photographic digital database of African art, and is a division of the Department of African Art, established in 2004, at the Yale University Art Gallery. The Archive has been under development by Guy van Rijn, for several decades. In 2001, the project was acquired and funded for Yale by James J. Ross (Yale B.A. 1960). The ultimate goal is to make the Archive accessible online, but at present it is available for general research by appointment only at the Department of African Art at Yale, New Haven, Connecticut, USA, or at the Van Rijn Documentation Centre, Brussels, Belgium.

For years I have been using the “Who’s Who in African Art”, searching names and data of collectors and dealers.
Today, the “Who is Who in African Art” is available for free online on a website called Danster Research. This project is coordinated by Bruno Claessens.
The nice thing is that since it is online, the search results are instant.
You even get entries results that are phonetically close to your search, and images from the people when available.
To make Danster Project better they have a special, but interesting request:

although there are circa 16.000 names listed, we only have ca 1.200 photos of people or galleries.
If you are interested in “the past”: provenances, data, photos etc. please contribute to these files.
1) Check the names in the Who’s Who at:
2) So if you have pictures or information’s from people that are in the Who’s Who please send them to:
We also have a few freebies we’ll send those of you who give there address and give us interesting informations and images.
