It took about 4 years to gather the 18 seated statues from the Baule tribe, presented by Bernard de Grunne at TEFAF Maastricht 2016.   As Baule artists never signed their works, De Grunne named the seven identified Baule "Masters" after famous collectors and dealers.   The "Ascher" Master, a reference to renowned dealer Ernst Ascher, defines a corpus of 12 figures. These statues have high coiffures, finely carved, with some deep red patina and an intense facial expression.
