Offering a fascinating multi-disciplinary approach to African art, this stunning volume presents 65 works from West and Central Africa, South Africa, and Madagascar, all from one private collection. Organized around four main themes—governance and communication, protection and caring, coming together (celebrating, judging, and awarding prizes) and serving and beautifying—this book offers a general introduction to African art as well as a deeper understanding of the artworks’ source cultures. New photographs of the 65 works are followed by a selection of early 20th-century avant-garde photographs and contemporary works—by Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Erwin Blumenfeld, Robert Doisneau, Karl Blossfeldt, as well as Nicolas Bruant, Fr.d.ric Vidal, and Louis Tirilly—showing the close relationship between modern and contemporary Western art and six fascinating African pieces from the collection. 
Patrick Caput is senior international consultant, African and Oceanic art, at Sotheby’s Paris.Valentine Plisnier is a researcher in art history and the author of several books.
