Very lavishly illustrated book on artistic traditions in Africa. It was written by a colonial administrator from France who none the less appreciated the accomplishment of African artists and argued a then unpopular opinion on the intellectual merits of this art and the people who created it.

The art itself has certain recurring motifs that can be seen throughout Subsaharan Africa. Most of the figures are very stylized in these general motifs. Long ovoid shapes to the heads of human form often Very lavishly illustrated book on artistic traditions in Africa. Long ovoid shapes to the heads of human form often forming a conical chin in the lower parts of the heads.
Tall figures and the treatment of the eyes that to my untrained eye resemble cowrie shells. Angular creations. Note an exception to the stylization are some of the Nigerian figures which are more realistic in treatment of the human form.

I like exploring a tradition largely independent of the European tradition. As a sidenote artist like Picasso drew some inspiration from some of these works of art which were becoming more known to Europeans of his time. This book had many, many pictures of African art and had information about the art.
