Through the Eyes of Picasso : Face to Face with African and Oceanic Art
Through works of art, photographs, and writings, this catalogue for a show at Musée du Quai Branly explores Picasso's lifelong fascination with tribal art from Africa, Oceania, the Americas, and Asia.
Side-by-side comparisons illustrate the links between Picasso’s oeuvre and diverse tribal arts, in particular, showing the same themes of nudity, sexuality, impulses, death. The volume is completed with a chronology of the relevant works and photographs of the artist in his studio.
