African masters : art from the Ivory Coast by Eberhard Fischer( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"West Africa has a rich artistic tradition, with artists whose work rivals the great masters of European art. Yet the assumption still prevails that traditional African art is the product of "tribal workshops," guided by neither genuine aesthetic principles nor independent artistic sensibilities. African Masters corrects this oversight with a comprehensive overview of the most significant sculptors from the Ivory Coast and neighboring countries, including works by artists from among the Guro, Senufo, Dan, Baule, and Lobi. Works from ancient masters are juxtaposed with those of important contemporary artists and essays by renowned scholars who investigate the role of artists in traditional and modern societies, their ideals of beauty and its transformation into works of art. Featuring more than two hundred full-color masterpieces from public and private collections--including many never before published--the book marks a milestone in research on West African art."--Amazon.com, viewed May 27, 2015

"Twenty years ago, it seemed as though modern art had exhausted its energies, and was dying of a slow anaemia. Then, as by miracle, the art of a remote, misunderstood and despised era appeared above the horizon, and all was changed. In a time incredibly brief the pent-up energies were released, a new and intense vitality appeared in all the realms of aesthetic endeavour, and european art, which had appeared to be withering, bloomed once more."--Page [4] of cover

4e de couv.: Die angesehenen Schnitzer der Guro, Senufo, Dan, Baule, Lobi und der Lagunenvölker haben mit ihren ausdruckssstarken Skulpturen grossen Einfluss auf die Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts in Europa gehabt. Dieses Buch widerlegt die verbreitete Ansicht, dass es in der afrikanischen Kunst keine Künstlerpersönlichkeiten gegeben habe, sondern lediglich "Stammeswerkstätten" mit anonymen Bildhauern. International angesehene Experten besprechen die Werke der Meisterschnitzer der Elfenbeinküste und der angrenzenden Länder und schlagen einen Bogen zur zeitgenössischen Kunst aus dieser Region. Beleuchtet wird die Rolle der Künstler, ihre einflussreichen Schönheitsideale und deren Umsetzung in den Skulpturen. Das Buch erscheint anlässlich von Ausstellungen im Museum Rietberg Zürich und in der Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn. Beiträge von Eberhard Fischer, Lorenz Homberger, Monica Blackmun Visonà, Daniela Bognolo und Bernard de Grunne. Herausgegeben vom Museum Rietberg Zürich und der Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
