Ancestors of the Lake Art of the Lake Sentani and Humboldt Bay, New Guinea (N° 20811)

After Dutch expeditions reached the island of Lake Sentani and Humboldt Bay in New Guinea in the mid-1800s, Western visitors began collecting the works of local artists. Ancestors of the Lake is a stunning look at the region's distinctive art, such as its highly stylized wood carvings and bark canvases of decorative and abstract design. This beautifully illustrated volume brings together for the first time many of these important historical pieces, including the landmark collection of French writer and art dealer Jacques Viot, as well as photographs by Paul Wirz. The book also explores how European Surrealist artists found inspiration in New Guinea art, as evidenced by rarely seen photographs by Man Ray depicting Sentani sculptures.
