Sculptures : Africa, Asia, Oceania, Americas( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and French and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The event is both historic and symbolic: a selection of some 120 masterpieces of African, Asian, Oceanic and American art is now on display at the Louvre. These outstanding pieces of sculpture come, in the main, from the Musee de l'Homme, the Musee National des Arts d'Afrique et d'Oceanie and several other French national or local museums. In addition, however, a number of important foreign museums have agreed to lend key works, some of which have never been seen outside their country of origin. Furthermore, this presentation represents the first opportunity to see some of the remarkable acquisitions with which French museums recently consolidated their own holdings. Pending the opening of the Musee du Quai Branly in 2004, this Pavillon des Sessions display represents the first step towards realising the ambition stated by the President of the Republic: namely to endow France with a modern institution dedicated to the arts and civilisations of Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and the Americas."--Jacket

The Plains Indians : artists of earth and sky by Gaylord Torrence( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky celebrates the extraordinary beauty, power, and spiritual resonance of Plains Indian art throughout time. Richly illustrated, this volume includes a wealth of masterworks from European and North American collections, ranging from a 2,000-year-old Human Effigy stone pipe to a 2011 beaded adaptation of designer shoes. Works of art collected centuries ago by French traders and travelers are presented together with those acquired by Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition of 1804-06, along with objects from the early reservation era and contemporary works based in traditional forms and ideas. The distinct Plains aesthetic -- intertwined with the natural world, ephemeral, and materially rich -- is revealed through an array of forms and mediums: painting and drawing; sculptural works in stone, wood, antler, and shell; porcupine quill and glass bead embroidery; feather work; painted robes depicting figures and geometric shapes; and richly ornamented clothing and ceremonial objects. Many nations are represented -- Osage, Quapaw, Omaha, Crow, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Lakota, Blackfeet, Pawnee, Kiowa, Comanche, Mesquakie, Kansa, and others. With newly researched texts by leading scholars, this book charts the continuum of centuries of artistic tradition and reflects the significant place that Plains Indian culture holds in European history and in the heritage of North America
New Ireland : art of the South Pacific by Michael Gunn( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the southwest Pacific, at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, the people of New Ireland, an island group located east of New Guinea, created more than 20,000 works of art which they used in traditional context, then exported to the outside world. In their ceaseless quest for artistic expression, the people living on this remote archipelago created strikingly original pieces which are astonishing works of art." "In order to gain a greater understanding of the creative processes that occurred more than 120 years ago and resulted in this tremendous outpouring of art objects, the curators and authors traveled to New Ireland to work with local people in their villages. They brought with them photographs of the old art works now in museum collections, and they records aesthetic experience and ritual context as they occur today. Their original research in many of the art-producing regions of New Ireland has resulted in new data that has provided in a much clearer understanding of creativity in Island Melanesia than has previously been achieved." "The exhibition and catalogue feature art works from all regions of New Ireland that originated during this period, and explore the sources of this tremendously creative output."--BOOK JACKET

Art of armor : samurai armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum by Tex.) Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum (Dallas( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This extraordinary publication presents, for the first time, the samurai armor collection of the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum in Dallas. The Barbier-Mueller has selectively amassed these pieces of armor over the past twenty-five years, ultimately forming one of the largest and most important collections of its kind in the world. It is composed of nearly three hundred objects, several of which are considered masterpieces, including suits of armor, helmets, masks, horse armor, and weaponry. The objects date from the 12th to the 19th century, with a particularly strong focus on Edo-period armor. Offering an exciting look into the world of the samurai warrior, the book begins with an introduction by Morihiro Ogawa. Essays by prominent scholars in the field highlight topics such as the phenomenon of the warrior in Japan, the development of the samurai helmet, castle architecture, women in samurai culture, and Japanese horse armor. The book's final section consists of an extensive catalogue of objects, concentrating on 120 significant works in the collection. Lavishly illustrated in full color, each object is accompanied by an entry written by a scholar of Japanese armor."--Publisher's website
Through the eyes of Picasso : face to face with African and Oceanic art by Pablo Picasso( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Picasso once famously - and provocatively - declared that he was not acquainted with African art. yet hundreds of archival documents and photographs - in addition to reproductions of his artworks alongside so-called "primitive" works from Africa and Oceania, as well as the Americas and Asia - illustrate how such art was a continual source of inspiration for the master artist throughout his career. Divided into three parts, this comprehensive tome explores Picasso's fascination with art from outside of Europe. A chronology - spanning from his arrival in Paris in 1900 to 1974, the year following his death - highlights the principal points of intersection between the artist and "primitive" art: where he encountered it, which pieces he collected, and the resonances found in his own creations. Each date is elucidated through facts, testimonial accounts, and photographs, as well as comments from Picasso himself. The second part examines the thematic links between Picasso's oeuvre and diverse non-European works, providing side-by-side comparisons that reveal recurrent themes - nudity, sexuality, impulses, death, and more - along with parallel artistic expressions of those themes, such as the disfiguration or destruction of the body. Essays by three authoritative authors complete the exploration, providing context and valuable insight into the influence of these works on Picasso and the lasting and meaningful bond he had with them."

Dogon by Hélène Leloup( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in French and German and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La conquête de Bandiagara en 1893 par les Occidentaux a fait naître en Europe une fascination pour l'art dogon qui n'aura eu cesse de croître jusqu'à nos jours. De cette culture, on connaît surtout les impressionnants masques ainsi que l'extraordinaire statuaire, alors que la création plastique dogon compte bon nombre d'autres types de pièces cultuelles ou même d'usage quotidien de grande qualité. Cet ouvrage, à la fois ouvrage de synthèse et catalogue raisonné, s'attache à nous faire découvrir dans toute sa complexité, sa diversité et sa richesse, l'histoire dogon et son corollaire, la culture artistique. Quelles furent les origines des Dogons et comment ont-ils vécu les contacts successifs avec les peuples déjà installés dans la région de Bandiagara ? Sous quelles formes et à travers quels styles leur art s'est-il manifesté ? Expressions métaphysiques ou esthétiques, continuum culturel ou grande variété, qu'exprimaient les Dogons ? Qui étaient-ils ?

Featuring hundreds of previously unpublished images, this is at once a visual feast, a cultural history, and a tribute to a very particular vision of paradise."--Jacket
