• About Masque Art Africain...


La signification des masques : Les fonctions des masques sont multiples même s’ils servent, principalement, aux cérémonies ; je compare souvent l’utilisation du masque à celle que l’on fait chez nous de la robe de mariée...

Art nègre et cubisme : Dans la tradition ouverte depuis la mise en oeuvre de la perspective à la Renaissance, le peintre donnait du sens à des images ressemblantes. Et voilà que des formes exprimant la structure abstraite..

One of the great merits of this book is to address the arts of Black Africa thematically: Importance capital of religion and magic, belief in occult powers granted everywhere, ancestral worship accompanied by sacrifices, funeral rites, initiation ceremonies, masked dances, powerful secret societies, leaders will prestige, desire for adornment or beauty search for the humblest objects, these are the deep sources of traditional African art.In this context, the artist responsible for the creation of works indisensables had only relative freedom, but what a result! A careful aesthetic analysis shows how the problems were solved brilliantly: Insider shapes, bold in the conceptualization, shortcuts evocative and it is no coincidence that African art has influenced so profoundly modern art, Modigliani Matisse, Vlaminck and Derain through cubism of Picasso and Juan Gris.Capital and complete a book which reveals and explains the secrets and roots arts of Black Africa My opinion:Laure Meyer, born in Africa, art historian and journalist, well known to all lovers of African art, gives us in this book all the keys to "Understanding African art"
