Synopsis: West Africa has a rich artistic tradition, with artists whose work rivals the great masters of European art. Yet the assumption still prevails that traditional African art is the product of “tribal workshops,? guided by neither genuine aesthetic principles nor independent artistic sensibilities.

African Masters corrects this oversight with a comprehensive overview of the most significant sculptors from the Ivory Coast and neighboring countries, including works by artists from among the Guro, Senufo, Dan, Baule, and Lobi. Works from ancient masters are juxtaposed with those of important contemporary artists and essays by renowned scholars who investigate the role of artists in traditional and modern societies, their ideals of beauty and its transformation into works of art.
           
Featuring more than two hundred full-color masterpieces from public and private collections—including many never before published—the book marks a milestone in research on West African art.

About the Author: The Museum Rietberg is one of Europe?s leading museums for non-European art.

Book Description Scheidegger & Spiess Nov 2014, 2014. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 287x253x27 mm. Neuware - Die angesehenen Schnitzer der Guro, Senufo, Dan, Baule, Lobi und der Lagunenvölker haben mit ihren ausdruckssstarken Skulpturen grossen Einfluss auf die Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts in Europa gehabt. Dieses Buch widerlegt die verbreitete Ansicht, dass es in der afrikanischen Kunst keine Künstlerpersönlichkeiten gegeben habe, sondern lediglich 'Stammeswerkstätten' mit anonymen Bildhauern. International angesehene Experten besprechen die Werke der Meisterschnitzer der Elfenbeinküste und der angrenzenden Länder und schlagen einen Bogen zur zeitgenössischen Kunst aus dieser Region. Beleuchtet wird die Rolle der Künstler, ihre einflussreichen Schönheitsideale und deren Umsetzung in den Skulpturen. 240 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783858817617
