Lore Kegel was one of the first women to study at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and later worked as a painter and art dealer. In 1924 she married the explorer and art dealer Julius Konietzko. In 1935 Lore Kegel opened her own art shop "Lore Kegel - Exotic Art". Already in the early 1930s Lore Kegel travelled to India, Lapland, Tibet, Sardinia, Aran Islands and Abruzzo, where she conducted ethnological and folkloristic research and collected material for numerous museums.
After the Second World War she undertook several study trips to Africa both alone and with her third husband Dr. med. Georg-Arthur Kegel and her son Boris Kegel-Konietzko, who lived in the Congo at that time, during which she was able to add numerous tribal art objects of extraordinary quality to her domestic collection.
Their art shop supplied German and foreign museums and exhibitions. The Kegel-Konietzko collection still stands for the impressive art of the African tribes.
The series of 6 original artworks presented here was created in 1963.
