African art by Michel Leiris ( Book )
12 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 808 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

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)
