Synopsis: The first publication of the Barnes Foundation’s important and extensive African art collection. The Barnes Foundation is renowned for its astonishing collection of Postimpressionist and early Modern art assembled by Albert C. Barnes, a Philadelphia pharmaceutical entrepreneur. Less known is the pioneering collection of African sculpture that Barnes acquired between 1922 and 1924, mainly from Paul Guillaume, the Paris-based dealer. The Barnes Foundation was one of the first permanent installations in the United States to present objects from Africa as fine art. Indeed, the African collection is central to understanding Barnes’s socially progressive vision for his foundation.This comprehensive volume showcases all 123 objects, including reliquary figures, masks, and utensils, most of which originated in France’s African colonies—Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, and the Congo—as well as in Sierra Leone, Republic of Benin, and Nigeria. Christa Clarke considers the significance of the collection and Barnes’s role in the Harlem Renaissance and in fostering broader appreciation of African art in the twentieth century. In-depth catalog entries by noted scholars in the field complete the volume.

About the Author: Christa Clarke is senior curator of Arts of Global Africa at the Newark Museum, New Jersey. She is a specialist in historic and contemporary African art.

Book Description Die erste Publikation der bedeutenden und umfangreichen afrikanischen Kunstsammlung der Barnes Foundation. Die Barnes Foundation ist bekannt für ihre erstaunliche Sammlung postimpressionistischer und frühneuzeitlicher Kunst, die von Albert C. Barnes, einem pharmazeutischen Unternehmer aus Philadelphia, zusammengestellt wurde. Weniger bekannt ist die bahnbrechende Sammlung afrikanischer Skulpturen, die Barnes zwischen 1922 und 1924 vor allem vom Pariser Händler Paul Guillaume erwarb. Die Foundation bot eine der ersten permanenten Installationen in den Vereinigten Staaten, die Objekte aus Afrika als bildende Kunst präsentierte. Dieser umfassende Band zeigt alle 123 Objekte, darunter Reliquienfiguren, Masken und Utensilien, von denen die meisten aus den afrikanischen Kolonien - Mali, Elfenbeinküste, Gabun und Kongo - sowie aus Sierra Leone, der Republik Benin und Nigeria stammen. Christa Clarke betrachtet die Bedeutung der Sammlung und Barnes Rolle in der Harlem-Renaissance und bei der Förderung einer breiteren Wertschätzung der afrikanischen Kunst im 20. Jahrhundert. Ausführliche Katalogeinträge namhafter Wissenschaftler vervollständigen den Band. (Text engl.) 23,5 x 32,5 cm, 296 S., zahlr. Abb., geb. Seller Inventory # 1082590
