The Authenticity of African Sculptures

by Henri Kamer

The issue of authenticity of African art has been central to collectors for decades.  Henri Kamer, who was president of the International Arts Experts Association at the time, published an outstanding account of the state of the matter in Artes d'Afrique Noire, No. 12 (1974).  The text  that follows is extracted from an English translation of that article, and has been edited further.  The original includes a number of illustrations.  They are not included here because I believe the text suffices without them. 

The original version, including the illustrations, in French and with the English translation, is

Milano, 2008; clothbound, pp. 239, 118 col. ill., cm 24,5x29. Una selezione di importanti maschere e statue di arte africana, la cui funzione principale era quella di incantare le persone, così come la Medusa della mitologia greca pietrificava chiunque ne incrociasse lo sguardo. Queste opere non avevano il compito di rappresentare una persona o una cosa, ma possedevano un potere magico che agiva sul mondo e sulle persone che partecipavano ai rituali iniziatici, religiosi o terapeutici. Circondate di segreti e realizzate con una maestria eccezionale nella lavorazione dei materiali, le sculture e la maschere venivano presentate ai profani in complesse e impressionanti drammaturgie. L'autore passa in rassegna gli elementi costitutivi delle opere, i materiali e i colori, il soggetto, infine ne specifica il simbolismo e l'uso

From Publishers Weekly:
In this specialized but illuminating work, Harvard-trained anthropologist Steiner analyzes the assumptions behind the work of native African art traders in Cote d'Ivoire, who serve as the link between African artists and Western collectors. He describes the trading process as not only a complex economic system but one of shifting cross-cultural exchange in which the image of Africa is continually redefined. Steiner classifies the range of sources and art objects available in the trading city of Abidjan, then describes how traders work. He analyzes different forms of bargaining (from careful negotiation with Western dealers to staged performance for tourists). More intriguingly, he argues that Western scholarship has influenced classification of art objects by ethnicity rather than by region, and observes how Africans seek authenticity in things Western, while visitors want symbols of a "primitive" lifestyle--as when he witnesses the barter of a mask for a Seiko watch. In the West, he notes, the practical value of African objects like baskets is ignored, while an obsession with the growing value of African art tends to negate appreciation of its beauty.

Hardback with jacket, 120 illustrations, 100 in colour. Revealing the powers immanent in works that the West long regarded only as exotic or abstract, Constantine Petridis looks beneath the surface of the arts of the Luba, Songye, Chokwe and Luluwa peoples to find, literally embedded in sculpture, the forces that enable the spirit world to intervene in daily life. Ritual use of these objects is expected to ensure a healthy birth, successful hunt, or triumph over an enemy. Analysis of the scholarly record illuminates the changing visions of leadership and prestige that fostered the development of the majestic, elaborate figure styles long prized in the

Descrizione libro: I Punu, stanziati nella regione sud-occidentale del Gabon, fanno parte di un gruppo di popolazioni essenzialmente conosciute per le maschere bianche. Questi oggetti non hanno mai cessato di impressionare, dai collezionisti agli appassionati di arte africana, fino agli artisti occidentali dell'inizio del Novecento; Picasso, in particolare, ne possedeva una. Il volto ricoperto di argilla bianca, gli occhi leggermente a mandorla, la bocca dalle labbra rosse finemente contornate e l'acconciatura sofisticata composta di varie ciocche di capelli intrecciati, fanno parte delle caratteristiche stilistiche delle maschere. Gli autori studiano il contesto di uso rituale di questi importanti oggetti, che i Punu e le popolazioni loro collegate utilizzavano in occasione di danze chiamate, tra gli altri nomi, "mukuyi". Le maschere appartenevano al "bwiri", congregazione di soli uomini, e coloro che le portavano erano scelti esclusivamente tra gli iniziati. Costoro eseguivano danze acrobatiche su trampoli, il più delle volte in occasione di riti funerari e in onore degli antenati, incarnati dalle maschere. Questi ultimi assumevano, così, un ruolo di vigilanza allontanando le forze del male. Le danze esistono anche attualmente, ma in un contesto di festeggiamenti, senza rispettare più l'anonimato di chi le indossa. La ricerca delle tradizioni e delle loro correlazioni con il contesto della regione del Gabon meridionale, passa in rassegna altri oggetti, molto meno

Descrizione libro
Fin dai tempi della "scoperta" delle arti africane a opera di Braque e Picasso l'arte dei Fang è considerata una delle più emblematiche tra le arti dell'Africa nera. Ma la subitanea celebrità di alcune effigi ha portato, paradossalmente, a misconoscere le molteplici fonti ed espressioni dell'immaginario fang. Il presente volume analizza finalmente tutti i manufatti a carattere sociale, rituale o simbolico. Statuette o semplici teste connesse al culto degli antenati, maschere da danza dei vari riti, insegne di potere, copricapo e ornamenti, armi, strumenti musicali ornati, utensili della vita di tutti i giorni testimoniano, con i loro diversi materiali, una creatività estetica straordinariamente diversificata, in armonia con il variopinto universo di credenze e

Descrizione libro: It is in a plural perspective, an association of history, ethnography, stylistic analysis and aesthetics, that this work presents the artistic and cultural production of the small kingdom of Mankon on the high plateaux of western Cameroon: these objects, linked with rituals, of prestige or more ordinary ones are all charged with meaning, but also with identified characteristic shapes, all bearing the memory of the treasures of kings, notables and secret societies. This production of the arts plays a fundamental role in cultural continuity, protects evidence of the past and preserves objects used in rites for the well-being of society. This is why they form an essential part of the artistic and cultural heritage of the whole of Mankon. They are extraordinarily rich, both regarding the quality of the objects, by the diversity of domains they approach and by the variety of decorative patterns (men, animals, geometric and plant shapes etc.), styles and

Most museum exhibitions and books on African art focus on masks and figurative sculptures, largely ignoring many types of objects common in African cultures that "demonstrate an aesthetic sensibility all the more remarkable for serving the humblest of purposes." In this volume, Meyer offers a splendidly illustrated survey of everyday, primarily utilitarian objects furnishings, culinary utensils, textiles, jewelry, weapons, musical instruments, games, pipes, regalia, that reveal undeniable beauty of design, ornamentation, or display. Less detailed and scholarly than Roy Sieber's catalog African Furniture and Household Objects (Indiana Univ. Pr., 1980), Meyer's work nevertheless offers concise introductions to scores of categories of objects that are both essential to, and revealing of, the nature of African life. Highly recommended for public library collections of African studies or art. Dr. Eugene C. Burt, Art Inst. of Seattle

Descrizione libro: The ancient kingdoms of the Cameroon Grassfields are famous for their splendid artworks - thrones ornamented with precious European beads, wooden figures sculptured by unknown masters, enormous drums, finely carved jewelry made from ivory and brass, as well as fabulous masks. This book presents 150 impressive masterpieces from the courts of the Grassfield kingdoms. Historical photographs illustrate the magnificent life at the courts so enthusiastically described by the first European visitors in the late 19th century. Additional field photographs taken in recent years show that the traditions in the Grassfields are still alive and cared for today. Two leading scholars in the field of Cameroonian art give an important introduction to the fascinating and complex world of the Grassfield kingdoms: their rituals, secret societies, and, above all, the meaning of art in this context.

From Library Journal
These two books by the same publisher are very similar in a number of ways?they are designed to accompany major European exhibitions; contain hundreds of visually impressive photos of some of the finest works of African artistry; and cover the art of Africa while emphasizing the sculpture of West and Central Africa. These similarities aside, the books differ significantly in terms of the nature of the text and the focus of the content. Early in the 20th century a small number of European collectors acquired significant collections of African art. Han Coray (1880-1974), a modern art dealer in Zurich, was one of the earliest of those collectors, and his extensive collection eventually became the property of the Zurich University Ethnographic Museum. African Art is a catalog of that collection, with over 300 photographs of the objects. While most of the catalog entries provide useful information about the objects, some are unsatisfyingly only descriptive. More than a dozen essays are also provided,

These objects of joyful and sublime beauty are used in a variety of social and spiritual ceremonies. Art ethnologist Eberhard Fischer has spent decades researching the Guro traditions and documenting their way of life. In this book he presents a collection of hundreds of images, many of them published for the first time, of masks and woodcarvings, as well as lively scenes of Guro dances and artisans at work. Numerous interviews with prominent Guro, including religious officials, carvers, weavers, dancers, and cult masters, enhance the appreciation of this society.

Sur tous les continents, depuis la nuit des temps, dans les sociétés dites "traditionnelles", les individus inscrivent à même leur chair des marques, éphémères ou indélébiles, qui affirment une identité, jalonnent une initiation, précisent une hiérarchie, accompagnent une thérapie. Le corps n'atteint sa véritable plénitude, sa dimension sociale, spirituelle, "civilisée", que par cette ornementation peinte, gravée, sertie, par ces interventions et ces transformations artificielles. Tatouage, scarification, piercing, implants, branding, font aujourd'hui surface dans les sociétés dites " évoluées ".

Les Fang et les Kota en ont été les sculpteurs les plus inspirés.

De même, des objets étranges venus d'Afrique, sortis des malles des missionnaires, des médecins et des administrateurs coloniaux, sont passés du Musée d'Ethnographie au Musée d'Art et d'Histoire où ils ont acquis leurs lettres de noblesse. C'est un événement. Au moment où l'art africain fut révélé dans sa forme à Picasso, Matisse, Breton et les autres, notre art s'est transformé.

Passione d’Africa traccia la storia del collezionismo di arte dell’Africa subsahariana in Italia – o di italiani residenti all’estero – a partire dagli anni cinquanta fino ai nostri giorni. Il volume, con una introduzione di Egidio Cossa, riproduce oltre 130 capolavori, selezionati per il loro valore estetico e perché illustrano le tappe di questa vicenda collezionistica.
Il libro vuole restituire una fotografia oggettiva, senza partiti presi o pretese di esclusività, del collezionismo d’arte africana in Italia. Lo fa con l’ampio saggio di Jean-Louis Paudrat e con la completissima crono-bibliografia dello stesso studioso che elenca oltre cinquant’anni di pubblicazioni, mostre, convegni ed aste di arte africana in Italia. Da questa ricognizione emerge una nuova immagine del collezionismo d’arte africana in Italia, a torto ritenuto un ‘parente
