Ivories Of Africa In Old French Collections (N° 20898)

From the end of the 15th century, the first Portuguese caravels began to make regular stops along the African coast south of the Sahara and brought back to Europe spectacular ivory objects. They reveal not only the links between Europe and Africa over the centuries, but above all the hitherto unsuspected existence of refined civilizations and the talent of their artists. This book by Ezio Bassani emphasizes the exceptional richness of the French collections, for the first time assembled by the musée du quai Branly. It reproduces all the works on display and revealing details (olifants, salt shakers, cutlery...), as well as numerous documents (engravings of ornaments, drawings, paintings...) that allow us to understand the sources and the use that collectors and European courts made of them.
