The African Arts Trust is a charitable trust setup by the collector and philanthropist, Robert Devereux. The charity (number 1141553) was set up and registered with the Charity Commission on the 21st April 2011, following the successful fundraising auction of Robert Devereuxs private collection of post-war British art at Sothebys, London in November 2010. The trust is based on years of frequent travel to Africa and the recognition that there is a wealth of artistic talent there, which is stifled by the lack of resources available locally to full time artists.
The charity is run by the following trustees,
Robert Devereux is Director of the Charity.
Jessie Scott is the Administrator for the Charity.
The registered office is at Flat 3, 128 Talbot Road, London, W11 1JA.
