Overview
Offering a fascinating multi-disciplinary approach to African art, this stunning volume presents 65 works from West and Central Africa, South Africa, and Madagascar, all from one private collection. Organized around four main themes--governance and communication, protection and caring, coming together (celebrating, judging, and awarding prizes) and serving and beautifying--this book offers a general introduction to African art as well as a deeper understanding of the artworks' source cultures. New photographs of the 65 works are followed by a selection of early 20th-century avant-garde photographs and contemporary works--by Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld, Robert Doisneau, Karl Blossfeldt, as well as Nicolas Bruant, Fr.d.ric Vidal, and Louis Tirilly--showing the close relationship between modern and contemporary Western art and six fascinating African pieces from the collection.
