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

Descrizione libro: Editore: Arnoldo Mondadori Editore - Copyright 1979 by Shogakukan Ltd., Tokyo, Japan - Prima edizione italiana: gennaio 1980 - Rilegato in tela rossa con sovracoperta a colori: pagg. 190, cm 21 x 27,5 - Illustrazioni a colori e B&N - Collana: Storia della scultura nel mondo (14 volumi)
 
Nota dell'editore: Per la prima volta la scultura costituisce il tema esclusivo di una storia dell'arte. Si tratta perciò di una pubblicazione unica, realizzata da specialisti di fama internazionale nei vari settori, e concepita in modo da offrire al pubblico due possibilità differenziate di lettura. Essa è infatti fruibile tanto nel suo insieme, come storia universale della scultura, quanto nei singoli volumi, che sono trattazioni perfettamente autosufficienti. L'originalità dei saggi specialistici, la serietà degli apparati, la qualità eccezionale delle immagini ne fanno un'opera insostituibile a tutti i livelli della

Masques bobo: Vie, formes et couleurs
Détails sur le produit: Relié: 126 pages - Editeur: Biro (20 novembre 2008) - Langue: Français 
ISBN-10: 2351190505 - ISBN-13: 978-2351190500
Descriptions du produit: Présentation de l'éditeur
Les magnifiques photographies de Guy Le Moal présentées ici sont totalement inédites. Elles ont été prises durant la célébration de cérémonies religieuses bobo auxquelles participent exclusivement les initiés. Elles permettent de restituer la part sensible de "la vie" des masques faits de feuilles et de fibres les plus sacrés, dont la nature éphémère ne permettra jamais de figurer sur les murs des musées. Recruté par Théodore Monod, directeur général de l'Institut français d'Afrique noire basé à Dakar, pour fonder un centre IFAN à Ouagadougou en Haute-Volta (aujourd'hui Burkina Faso) qu'il dirigera jusqu'à l'indépendance en 196o, Guy Le Moal découvre dès son arrivée en Afrique le peuple bobo et ses masques qui le captivent. Sa thèse consacrée aux Bobo a été publiée en 1980 par l'ORSTOM. Parallèlement, il a été détaché au CNRS en 1963 où il a poursuivi son activité jusqu'en 2004 dans le cadre du laboratoire "Systèmes de pensée en Afrique

Editore: RED/STUDIO REDAZIONALE
Collana: UOMINI E DEI - Pubblicazione: 11/1996 - Numero di pagine: 288
 
A guidare il lettore è il singolare incontro di un etnologo con il vecchio saggio Ogotemmeli, un anziano cacciatore cieco che, in una serie di colloqui svoltisi nel 1946, rivela tutto il sistema di pensiero del popolo dogon dotato di una cosmogonia, di una metafisica e di una religione tutt'altro che primitive e narra i miti e le leggende del suo popolo, i Dogon dell'Africa Occidentale. Le parole di questo "cantore" compongono un vero e proprio poema orale sulle origini dell'universo, una cosmogonia africana non lontana dalle grandi cosmogonie classiche. Il libro, pubblicato in Italia per la prima volta nel 1968, è qui riproposto in una nuova edizione nella collana "uomini e dei" curata e diretta dall'antropologo Francesco Paolo

ISBN: 8837050712 - ISBN-13: 9788837050719
 
Descrizione: È certamente difficile riunire in un libro le tante realtà che costituiscono l'Africa subsahariana. All'autore va riconosciuto il merito di esserci riuscito, adattando la struttura abituale della collana alle esigenze dell'argomento. Una prima ampia sezione è infatti dedicata alle diverse popolazioni ed etnie e alla loro dislocazione sul territorio del continente nero, premessa indispensabile per affrontare poi i temi di questo libro. I lemmi del dizionario spaziano da Società acefale a Schiavitù, da Politeismo africano a Islam nero, da Maschere a Stregoneria, e raccontano attraverso un'iconografia di eccezionale interesse e talvolta mai vista, usi, costumi, culti e credenze, rituali di popolazioni le cui tradizioni vanno via via

STRENGTH AND MEASUREMENT

The discovery of "primitive art": an art of strength
Shapes and shape functions

The living wood

Force and Measurement

Develop an aesthetic of black Africa is seen as a risky business in many ways. Is it legitimate to isolate these objects, that today we call art, the general framework of their relations and their cultural constraints? Can we submit to a test that has never existed in the minds of their creators? And can we finally see in this art - if we 'take on this term - a uniform phenomenon, despite the wide variety of both regional and local styles we offer this huge continent, following lengthy Historical developments often poorly understood? Finally, remember that this approach excludes large regions, including Africa white, that is to say the Mediterranean area with its ancient history, the eastern and southern Africa whose pastoral peoples have given rise to cultures almost without images, and finally these hunting societies, which, even in our time have not passed the stage of evolution of prehistoric rock paintings which are the main evidence of an artistic production that appears at various points the continent. Similarly, we must exclude from our contribution to the aesthetics of black African art the old feudal societies, including Benin. Our discussion is therefore limited to large areas farmers, the true cradle of

Commissioner Daniel Soutif

Jazz, along with film and rock, one of the major artistic events of the twentieth century. This hybrid music marked the global culture of its sounds and rhythms.

The exhibition, designed by the philosopher and art critic Daniel Soutif, presented in chronological relations between jazz and graphic arts throughout the twentieth century.

From painting to photography, from cinema to literature, not to mention the graphic or comic book, the exhibition shows more particularly the development of jazz in Europe and France in the 30 and 40.

Afrique occidentale française

L'Afrique occidentale française (AOF) était une fédération groupant, entre 1895 à 1958, huit colonies françaises d'Afrique de l'Ouest, avec l'objectif de coordonner sous une même autorité la pénétration coloniale française sur le continent africain.

Constituée en plusieurs étapes, elle réunit à terme la Mauritanie, le Sénégal, le Soudan français (devenu Mali), la Guinée, la Côte-d'Ivoire, le Niger, la Haute-Volta (devenue Burkina Faso) et le Dahomey (devenu Bénin), soit près de 25 millions de personnes au moment de sa dissolution.

Une organisation comparable sera instaurée en Afrique-Équatoriale française en 1910

Histoire

En remplacement d'un sous-secrétariat d'État, une loi du 20 mars 1894 institue un véritable ministère des Colonies, chargé de centraliser la gestion des colonies. Tous les territoires appartenant à la France ou protégés par elle hors d'Europe en relèvent désormais. Les administrateurs sont formés par l'École coloniale.

Died     29 June 1940 (aged 60)
Muralto, Switzerland
Nationality     German/Swiss
Training     Academy of Fine Arts, Munich
Works     more than 10,000 paintings, drawings, and etchings, including The Twittering Machine (1922), Fish Magic (1925), Viaducts Break Ranks (1937).

Paul Klee (18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a Swiss painter of German nationality. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. He was, as well, a student of orientalism. Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually mastered color theory, and wrote extensively about it. His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes child-like perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality. He and his friend, the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the German Bauhaus school of art and architecture.

Max Ernst

Born     April 2, 1891(1891-04-02)
Brühl, Germany
Died     April 1, 1976 (aged 84)
Paris, France
Nationality     German

Max Ernst (2 April 1891 – 1 April 1976) was a German painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and poet. A prolific artist, Ernst is considered to be one of the primary pioneers of the Dada movement and Surrealism.

Early life

Ernst was born in Brühl, Germany, near Cologne. In 1909, he enrolled in the University at Bonn to study philosophy but soon abandoned the courses. He began painting that year, but never received any formal artistic training. During World War I he served in the German army, which was a momentous interruption in his career as an artist. He stated in his autobiography, "Max Ernst died the 1st of August, 1914."
