L'ART D'AFRIQUE NOIRE DANS LES COLLECTIONS D'ARTISTES (African Art in Artists' Collections). Salles romanes du Cloitre, Arles, 1991. Published by S.A.E.M. Arles-Developpement in association with Musees d'Arles. 134 pp. with 98 ills. (37 col.). 28 x 23 cm. In French.
Presenting masks and sculptures drawn from the private collections of eleven postwar artists active in France (including Arman, Corneille, Bouillon and Prassinos) along with a selection of works owned by Apollinaire, Picasso and Braque, this catalogue reviews the links between African aesthetics and modern art. Two short texts discussing Picasso's personal discovery of African art in 1907 and the influence of tribal art on other important figures in the early 20th century preface brief statements by the eleven featured artists describing their individual interests in African works.
