African Arts (N° 19504)

This magnificent work presents seventy works from an important private collection, gathered over more than forty years with discipline, curiosity and passion. It is one of the most beautiful collections of art from West and Central Africa, as far away as South Africa and Madagascar.
Conceived around four major themes - governing and transmitting, protecting and caring, coming together (celebrating, praising or condemning), serving, beautifying and ennobling - this selection is accompanied by a general introduction to the question of African art and a deepening of our knowledge of the cultures to which these works owe their existence. The superb photographs of the seventy pieces in the first part of the publication are followed by a chapter devoted to some of the great avant-garde photographic masterpieces, which reveal a close relationship between this movement and nine fascinating African works in the collection. The objects are thus presented alongside images by renowned photographers Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Lajos Kassák, Hannah Höch, Erwin Blumenfeld, Maurice Tabard, Karl Blossfeldt and Robert Doisneau.
Finally, respecting a balance between often published masterpieces and others less well known, this book offers the public a selection of seven photographic artists (Jean Marc Tingaud, Louis Tirilly, Nicolas Bruant, Roger Ballen, Groupe Street Collodion Art, Coco Fronsac and Frédéric Vidal) who have been asked to represent for the first time, in a contemporary and personal style, nine renowned pieces.
