L'art africain (N° 22979) Deposit sale

This is a work that will undoubtedly have made a mark. About twenty years ago, the authors, Jean-Louis Paudrat, Lucien Stéphan, Françoise Stoullig-Marin, mobilized around Jacques Kerchache, attempted the synthesis which hitherto had been lacking in African art and which was obviously expected in the collection "Art and the great civilizations". The company preceded all the global or partial publications made during the 1990s around exhibitions on African arts. With the opening of the musée du quai Branly, a completely revamped edition enriched with around a hundred pieces was essential. Most of them come from this new museum, but also from German, English or American museums. Showing African art in its very artistic context is the principle that guides the approach proposed here. The works are not perceived in isolation but confronted with each other, which makes it possible to apprehend by the play of oppositions and similarities, redundancies and variations, the universe from which they emanate and what they represent. . Far from devout contemplation or purely ethnographic curiosity, this book offers a global approach to African sculpture by addressing questions of style as well as functions.
