Caroline’s place is also much recommended for other reasons: a gracious hostess and an excellent cook, she has a very good collection of African artifacts since she has lived in many corners of the continent. I have never collected masks or sculptures, feeling that I knew nothing about them and fearing the banality of so much of the merchandise that is on offer. But Caroline’s collection is a good example of what I know to be true anyway regarding any form of art collecting: trust your senses- if you like it and you have taste, it will be good.
