Material Culture

Granier | Ancient offers objects that connect to the past and to very different cultures, so as to feed your lives and interiors with vibrant perspectives and values.

Our main focus is on archetypal works, on sculptures imbued with a soul from the ancient civilisations of Africa and Oceania.


Laurent Granier specialises in fine ethnographic and ceremonial artworks from pre-1930 Africa and Oceania.

He has been collecting ancient arts from Africa and Oceania for over 15 years.

An expert in Sepik art, Laurent has written entry notes for leading auction houses, compiled essays, studies and provenance researches for collectors and dealers as well as managed projects in partnership with major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History.

Laurent is a Member of  the Tribal Art Society since 2020.


Granier | Ancient prepares four Collections per year (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) as well as thematic Collections on special occasions.

Each object is carefully selected based on its artistic merit, age, rarity and provenance and comes with a detailed description.

Hunting the finest pieces from the "pre-1930" era only, and documenting them properly, is what we continually do.


All prices include a custom-made stand by master base-maker Romain Laforêt, from Lyon (where necessary) and is accompanied by its original photographic print (on request)

Promoting the French regional "savoir-faire" is part of our philosophy.

Seeing and Receiving

Artworks can be seen at our French Brittany loft gallery or by appointment in Paris, London and Brussels.

We also ship worldwide with your choice of courier.
