About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Baule: African Art, Western Eyes by Vogel, Susan Mullin.

Description:

Quarto. 312pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers and half-title. Color frontispiece. The Baule are a major culture group in central Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) whose art has interested Westerners since the beginning of this century. Vogel, a leading authority on African art, has spent several decades researching Baule art and aesthetics, as well as studying the nature of Western appreciation of that art. In this book, designed to accompany an exhibition of the same name, Vogel has done a masterly job of revealing the meaning, relevance, and power of the full range of sacred, personal, performance, and utilitarian art objects among the Baule. Of course, masks and figure sculptures justifiably receive the greatest emphasis. The text, while scholarly, is refreshingly free of academic jargon and the use of footnotes, presumably to appeal to a wider audience. Accompanying the text are excellent, mostly color, photographs of objects in both Baule and museum settings. Minor shelf-wear along edges and slight creasing on spine. Previous owner's blind stamp on half-title (Norman Hurst). Very minor age-toning along paper margin. Wrappers and interior in overall good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Yale Univ Pr, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: Fine. 0894670786 Appears unread. Due to weight, no foreign orders or domestic priority shipments accepted without prior arrangement as to shipping costs, which will exceed our usual rates. The sculptures of the Baule people of the Ivory Coast have long been recognized in Europe and the United States as one of Africa's most significant art traditions. The work of many modern artists - Amedeo Modigliani in particular - refelects the direct influence of Baule invention and forms. This text explores for the texture and details of Baule life and art. Illustrations include field photographs showing artworks in the intimacy of daily lives and public performances, and museum photograophs of Baule sculptures. Susan Vogel focuses on the creation and uses of Baule works of art apart from their definition as "art" in western eyes. She establishes a means for understanding Baule expressive culture from the perspective of the Baule individuals. In a discussion of Baule experiences of art objects, she finds different kinds of looking and sleeping - art that is watched (mask dances and entertainment performances), that is seen without looking (works of art too sacred or awesome to be scrutinized), that is glimpsed (sculptures made for personal shrines and kept in private rooms), and that is visible to all (elaborately decorated objects that fulfill the desire for beauty and for open display of talents). 312 pages.

Book Description Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 1997. Softbound. Green & color illus. wraps. 312 pp. Profusely illustrated in color; weighs 4 lbs. Accompanied a traveling exhibition of pieces from the Baule ethnic group of the Ivory Coast. From the author's introduction: "My Baule friends and neighbors do not recognize a category of object that corresponds to 'art.' and do not identify an 'art experience.' They do appreciate and discuss the aesthetic qualities that distinguish certain things from ordinary objects -- but they discuss them by their own system of attributes. 'Art' cannot be described from a Baule point of view at all, simply because their view does not include 'art' in the Western sense of the word. As I questioned people about their objects, they told me things that at first seemed irrelevant to the research. Gradually I realized they were telling me what they felt I had to know to see their objects correctly. Eventually I was forced to recognize that their understanding and appreciations of these objects were the opposite of those I had learned from a Western museum culture; theirs focused on the spiritual presence associated with the object, and were only marginally concerned with the physical form of the object, while mine placed high value on the tangible, man-made art object and involved the suspicion that the metaphysical dimension was not available -- even vicariously. I do not feel that either approach is wrong, but neither is complete, and the tension between them has become one of the subjects of this book." (p. 17).A super catalogue, jam-packed with illustrations and text. VG- (Page edges have tanned lightly; otherwise book is clean.). Bookseller Inventory # 36506
