Die Kunst Afrikas lädt dazu ein, den dynamischen Ursprüngen der Vielzahl künstlerischer Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten auf den
Grund zu gehen, die von diesem exotisch mystischen Kontinent ausgehen.
Seit die afrikanische Kunst durch die koloniale Entdeckung am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts bekannt wurde, diente sie
Künstlern, die sie über die Zeit immer wieder nachahmten, als unerschöpfl iche Inspirationsquelle.
Die Stärke der Kunst Subsahara-Afrikas liegt in ihrer visuellen Vielfalt, worin die Kreativität der Künstler offenbar wird, die
fortwährend neue stylistische Formen entwerfen. Von Mauretanien bis nach Südafrika und von der Elfenbeinküste bis nach
Somalia: Statuen, Masken, Schmuck, Töpferwaren und Bildwirkerei bilden eine Vielfalt an alltäglichen und rituellen Objekten
aus den jeweils sehr unterschiedlichen Kulturkreisen.

Why do painters occasionally want they have been poets--and why do poets occasionally want they have been painters? What occurs whilst Rembrandt spells out Hebrew within the sky or Poussin spells out Latin on a tombstone? What occurs whilst Virgil, Ovid, or Shakespeare droop their plots to explain a fictitious portray? In Mute Poetry, talking photographs, Leonard Barkan explores such questions as he examines the deliciously ambiguous historical past of the connection among phrases and images, concentrating on the interval from antiquity to the Renaissance yet providing insights that still have a lot to claim approximately glossy artwork and literature.
The concept that a poem is sort of a photo has been a regular considering that a minimum of historic Greece, and writers and artists have usually mentioned poetry by means of discussing portray, and vice versa, yet their efforts bring up extra questions than they solution. From Plutarch ("painting is mute poetry, poetry a conversing picture") to Horace ("as an image, so a poem"), obvious readability speedy ends up in confusion approximately, for instance, what traits of images are being prompt upon poets or how pictorial homes should be switched over into poetical ones.
The background of evaluating and contrasting portray and poetry seems to be partially a narrative of makes an attempt to advertise one medium on the cost of the opposite. while, analogies among notice and picture have enabled writers and painters to contemplate and perform their craft. eventually, Barkan argues, this discussion is an expression of hope: the painter longs for the wealthy signification of language whereas the poet yearns for the direct sensuousness of painting.
