Talk about Tribal Art

Bérénice Schneiter takes us through the history, geography, and techniques of tribal art, from prehistoric cave paintings to aboriginal body art via the Klein-bluebefore- Klein statues of the Solomon Islands and the abstract feather art-work of pre-Colombian pre-abstract communities. What is tribal art, what does it look like, when did it start? The author refutes common preconceptions and outdated myths, demonstrating that tribal art comprises far more than masks, erotic figures, and sacred totems. The text is richly illustrated, providing a deeper understanding of art forms such as animal art, portraits, design, and graphics. Moving beyond the purely historical, the book also demonstrates the innovation, lasting impact, and current trends of this art form in a section devoted to artists and artistic movements that have been inspired by tribal art.
