African and Oceanic Art in Paris

A recent blog in my RSS inbox from Paris praised a temporary exhibit at the Muse'e Jaquemart-Andre', Art d'Afrique et d'Oceanie.

The museum's web page can be accessed here. While it is presented in the French language and the photography does not focus on individual pieces, the gallery photos reveal a very moving presentation of the top pieces from the Barbier-Mueller Collection.

If you are in or near Paris, you will be rewarded by a visit to the Muse'e Jaquemart-Andre'. If not, a visit to museum's Web site has its own instructive benefits.
Offered in the interest of expanded appreciation of tribal art, by Aboriginals: Art of the First Person and its online gallery featuring quality African tribal art.
