African art by Michel Leiris( Book )

45 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in 5 languages and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our knowledge of the arts of Africa, and of the circumstances in which they have been practised, is still very incomplete. Created over a period of several millennia in a vast range of techniques and materials, and extending to every field of human activity, African artefacts are newaly all essentially functional, but at the same time they can stand as pure works of art in their own right. The great dance masks of the secret societies, the carved ancestor figures, the beautiful bronze heads from Benin and the terracottas from Ife, the steatite bird-man from Zimbabwe - all these have a precise magico-religious function which in no way impairs their aesthetic value. In this book the authors have provided a detailed historical and aesthetic study fo the rich and varied panorama of African art. The first part of the book sets in context the historical relationship between the African and Western cultures, the aesthetic outlook of the African peoples and the place of Africa in the history of art generally. The second and third parts form a detailed account of the arts of Africa, considered first according to category, and then region by region."--Amazon

48 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce recueil, publié en 1969, rassemble des textes écrits pour la plupart entre 1925 et 1961, parmi lesquels figure le célèbre Glossaire j'y serre mes gloses. Ce livre révèle la nature du travail poétique de Michel Leiris, attaché à définir le langage comme révélation de soi-même et des autres : " Une monstrueuse aberration fait croire aux hommes que le langage est né pour faciliter leurs relations naturelles ... En disséquant les mots que nous aimons, nous découvrons leurs vertus les plus cachées et leurs ramifications secrètes qui se propagent à travers tout le langage "

"Dans la période de grande licence qui suivit les hostilités, le jazz fut un signe de ralliement, un étendard orgiaque aux couleurs du moment. Il agissait magiquement et son mode d'influence peut être comparé à une possession. C'était le meilleur élément pour donner leur vrai sens à ces fêtes, un sens religieux, avec communion par la danse, l'érotisme latent ou manifesté, et la boisson, moyen le plus efficace de niveler le fossé qui sépare les individus les uns des autres dans toute espèce de réunion." La prose de Leiris est une des plus belles qui soient aujourd'hui et il aura laissé quelques-unes des pages d'anthologie les plus solides que l'on puisse trouver chez les contemporains " (Roger Borderie)

Alberto Giacometti by Alberto Giacometti( Book )

6 editions published between 1964 and 1971 in English and German and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: One of the great masters of 20th century art, the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti captured the existential loneliness of modern humanity with his spindly, attenuated figures whose life-like gazes pierce the vastness of space. Uniting more than 250 sculptures, paintings, drawings and graphic works, this extensive monograph is an exemplary overview of his oeuvre. The book underscores the continuity between the two remarkable bodies of work that characterize his career: the pre-1935 works, which included the finest of all Surrealist sculptures, and the post-war masterpieces. As a result of a profound artistic crisis that began in 1934, when Giacometti returned to working from the model and thus broke with the Surrealists, the artist began tackling the problem of situating figures in space in an entirely new way. Painting played a key role in the solutions that Giacometti found to this problem, and the discussion here of the relationship between his two- and three- dimensional works reveals him to have been as great a painter as he was a sculptor
