Overview: The Jolika Collection of New Guinea Art

In 2002, a special exhibition of nineteen artworks recently acquired from the Jolika Collection of New Guinea art, donated in part by Marcia and John Friede and purchased in part through the Mrs. Paul L. Wattis Fund, opened at the Legion of Honor. The pieces were some of the finest New Guinea artworks still held privately anywhere in the world, and their addition to the permanent collection created a new and exciting area of focus for the Fine Arts Museums.
