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

As a son of a German manufacturer and a Dutch mother spent Muensterberger a big part of his(its) infancy with his(its) grandmother in Haarlem, in the Netherlands. Together with Klaus Mann, son of Thomas Mann, he(it) visited in Germany also some years the ode forest school; he(it) spoke therefore from childhood German and Dutch.
Muensterberger took(accepted) a study of the medicine at the university of Heidelberg, however, changed after a term to Berlin to study there ethnology. Moreover, he(it) graduated an education in the psychoanalytic institute of the Berlin university.
The art collector, baron Eduard of the Heydt, a removed relative of his(its) mother, announced him with ethnographischer, African art. Muensterberger dedicated to him as thanks to his(its) work appeared in 1955 Sculpture of primitive One.

La promotion des arts africains : survol historique d'un processus
En Occident, l’acquisition d’objets originaires d’Afrique remonte à l’époque de la Renaissance. Les États européens entament alors des expéditions commerciales vers d’autres contrées à la recherche de produits nouveaux.
Le discours sur les objets évolue selon le contexte idéologique et scientifique de l’Occident depuis le XVe siècle jusqu’à nos jours. Les pièces acquises par les Européens dans les sociétés africaines subissent alors 3 phases majeures d’appropriation et d’interprétation : (1) comme curiosité (XVe – XVIIIe siècle), (2) en tant qu’objets ethnographiques ensuite (XIXe siècle) et finalement (3) comme œuvres d’art (à partir du XXe siècle).
LES EUROPÉENS EN AFRIQUE 
Le contexte historique de l’Europe du XVe et du XVIe siècle présente les premières manifestations idéologiques ayant participé à l’installation des colonies sur le continent africain. La montée de la classe bourgeoise dans le système économique lui permet d’imposer ses idées dans le développement des mentalités, principalement par les valeurs du marché économique et du progrès technique, vecteur de richesse. Ainsi, la découverte des autres continents est motivée par la recherche de nouveaux produits.
Les premières expéditions européennes vers le continent africain ont un caractère commercial indéniable et, elles remontent au XVe siècle. Elles ont d’abord lieu sur les côtes et permettent l’établissement de

Notes succinctes sur les masques kalengula des Luntu et des peuples voisins (R.D.C.)
(première partie)
Constantin PETRIDIS (1) in Arts d'Afrique Noire arts premiers Automne 2000 N° 115
Au sein de la littérature sur les masques de l'Afrique subsaharienne, ce sont surtout les masques en bois sculpté qui ont retenu l'attention des chercheurs. Les publications sur le bassin du Congo n'ont pas fait exception à cette règle. Ainsi, le catalogue d'exposition 'Face of the Spirits', publié en 1993 à l'occasion d'une exposition du même nom à l'Etnografisch Museum d'Anvers, ne montre, sur un total de cent treize masques, que cinq exemplaires en fibres tressées (2). La rareté de ces objets dans les collections occidentales est due, entre autres, au fait que les matières utilisées résistent mal au transport et aux changements climatiques. Il faut sans doute également voir dans cette lacune une explication d'ordre esthétique. En effet, les premiers collectionneurs d'art africain, se laissant guider par des idéaux occidentaux, ne prenaient en considération que des matières jugées nobles telles le bois, les métaux ou l'ivoire. Pourtant, hormis des masques en bois sculpté, plusieurs peuples du bassin du Congo ont produit des couvre-chefs et couvre-visages en fibres et autres matières plus éphémères. Or, bien qu'ils soient occasionnellement mentionnés dans des publications spécialisées, les études approfondies les concernant font aujourd'hui toujours défaut (3).
En vertu de ce constat, il nous a semblé pertinent de nous pencher sur l'étude d'un type de masque nommé kalengula qui, malgré une

Cet ouvrage met en lumière les interrelations qui unissent la production artistique des groupes humains de l'Afrique centrale. Les correspondances et les mutations des formes présentées mettent en évidence les sources d'inspiration de ces populations s'exprimant dans une langue bantoue. Ces sculptures traduisent à leur manière la présence d'une civilisation unique de la côte atlantique aux abords du lac Tanganyika à l'est. Celle-ci couvre le bassin du fleuve Congo et celui d'Ogooué au Gabon. De nombreuses cartes géographiques ponctuent le passé culturel de ces peuples, leurs migrations et la localisation des sculptures choisies.

Descriptions du produit:The Northern Hemisphere has long looked at the art of the Southern Hemisphere and equatorial regions as a collection of curios or travel trophies illustrating the essentially barbarous nature of its creators. Slowly such views are changing as more effort is put to understanding the individual works of art and their context in the societies that produced them. Art historian Meyer has attempted to integrate over 200 color photos together with a general text giving an overview of the role of the arts in various African cultures. Although her choppy text (translated from the French) will provide a basis for interested readers to start research, the bibliography is dated and leads mostly to French sources. Rather than present an overview, Newton, the former director of New York's Museum of Primitive Art, has produced a catalog of suberb photographs with scholarly explanatory captions. The objects, mostly of wood, are drawn from Geneva's Barbier-Mueller Museum, considered one of the best collections in the world. Photographed with great depth of field and subtle lighting designed to accentuate texture, the sculptures are brought to life by a fine-grain printing process. Meyer uses some photos that also appear in Newton's book, but the two works complement each other rather than overlap. The Newton book is the better choice for general collections, but the differences in explaining societal context and the different scope of coverage warrant placement of both books in comprehensive collections.

Where Gods and Mortals Meet: Continuity and Renewal in Urhobo Art

Book Description: The Urhobo peoples occupy the western fringe of the Niger River delta in southern Nigeria, an area rich with oil reserves. Since the 1970s, the petroleum industry has brought worldwide wealth and attention to Nigeria, but tragically has also detracted from broad-based economic progress as flow stations, flare-offs, drilling platforms and pipelines have proliferated. As rural economies suffered an inevitable decline, the custom of maintaining traditional Urhobo art has experienced a parallel atrophy. The resultant decline in Urhobo culture has prompted a response among many Urhobo who want to celebrate and preserve their traditions for future generations. The Museum for African Art in New York makes a major contribution to this effort through the presentation of Where Gods and Mortals meet, the first exhibition to showcase Urhobo arts. The exhibition introduces never-before-seen Urhobo art and footage of cultural performances, from yesterday and today. This accompanying catalogue includes approximately 80 works of art: traditional art from the historical period 1850 to 1975, including monumental wood figures, metal and clay sculpture, and masks and costumes with accompanying poetry and song; a small selection of contemporary work by Bruce Onobrakpeya, an Urhobo by birth and one of Africa's foremost artists; plus photos and video footage of extraordinary multimedia masquerades. Edited by Perkins Foss.Essays by John Picton, Perkins Foss, Michael Y. Nabofa, G.G. Darah, Tanure Ojaide, and Bruce Onobrakpeya. Foreword by Peter Ekeh.

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

‘African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection’
 
This female figure, made of ivory and standing 37 inches tall, was made in the early Nineteenth Century by Edo peoples in the Benin kingdom court style, and was probably intended for an altar to a queen mother. It is one of the first two objects purchased by Paul and Ruth Tishman in 1959. "Ivory can be almost universally interpreted as a symbol of importance and wealth,” says exhibition curator Bryna Freyer.
WASHINGTON D.C.:Most Americans know little about the vast and diverse continent of Africa, much less the arts created there. Dark and primitive, the arts of the African peoples reflect the rituals of life, stripped to the most basic interpretive forms both conceptually and artistically.
Celebrating the arts of Africa and the profound role that they have played in molding Twentieth Century Abstraction and Modernist art in the "West" is the Smithsonian's newest exhibition, "African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection." It is on view through September 7, 2008, at The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art (NMAA).
 
"African Vision" showcases 88 outstanding artworks, part of a larger collection donated to the NMAA, that represents the largest gift of sculpture in the museum's history.
 
In 1959, Paul and Ruth Tishman began their collection with the purchase of two pieces of art from the Benin kingdom — an early Nineteenth Century ivory female figure standing 37 inches tall, made in the court style by the Edo peoples, and a 28-inch-tall, Eighteenth Century copper alloy mask that was worn by a divine-healer in masquerade
