Gallery de Ruijter-van Santen is specialised in African Tribal Art.
We collect, buy and sell genuine pieces from all over Africa. Most of the objects are found in European collections but we also collect jewelry and artefacts travelling in Africa. Our site www.tribal-art.nl gives you an actual impression of our stock and activities. Rudolf and Anneke de Ruijter-van Santen started collecting African Tribal Art at the end of the eighties. Their private collection counts about 200 objects. Being an artist Anneke van Santen organising home exhibitions since 1995. For this purpose both her studio and private house are open for thepublic. So visitors were confronted with the African Art collection of the de Ruijter-van Santen family. Some years later we started with special exhibitions on African Tribal Art. The success of these events resulted in the nowadays 3 exhibitions every year. Each is based on a different theme within African Art.
Our Gallery is open daily by appointment. During exhibitions there is free access at opening hours.
