Through works of art, photographs, and writings, this volume
explores Picasso&rsquo;s fascination with tribal art and the
influences he repeatedly drew upon for his own oeuvre.
&ldquo;African art? I don&rsquo;t know it.&rdquo; With this
provocative tone, Picasso tried to deny his relationship with art from
outside of Europe. However, through hundreds of archival documents
and photographs, this volume illustrates how tribal art from Africa,
Oceania, the Americas, and Asia was a recurring source of inspiration
for the artist.
'side-by-side comparisons illustrate the links
between Picasso&rsquo;s oeuvre and diverse tribal arts. In both,
we find the same themes&mdash;nudity, sexuality, impulses, death,
and more&mdash;along with parallel artistic expressions of those
themes&mdash;such as disfiguration or destruction of the body. The
volume is completed with a chronology of the relevant works and
photographs of the artist in his studio.
