Collectors visions


  • Product Description

      Thanks to the pioneering vision of enlightened art lovers - art critics, collectors, dealers and artists - the dawn of the 20th century saw the creations of sculptors in distant lands turn from being regarded as items of ethnographic evidence into bona fide artworks. This book presents the genius of the people who generated this art and the figures who were active in the tribal art world in France until the 1980's. Stunningly illustrated with examples of artefacts of striking beauty, many of which pictured for the first time, it invites the reader to ponder on the perception of beauty.
