Perfect Documents: Walker Evans and African Art, 1935 (Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications)
by Virginia Lee-Webb
Publisher's Description
Before beginning his work on the Depression-era South--which produced some of the most indelible images of his career--Evans was commissioned to document masterpieces for a 1935 Museum of Modern Art exhibition entitled "African Negro Art". Producing over 400 images--80 of which are reproduced here--of work from Cameroon, Gabon, and Nigeria, amongst other countries, the photographs reveal the first signs of his signature style that would develop in the next decades. With notes from the Evans archives, this volume is an extraordinary resource for fans and scholars of Evans and African art alike. These copies of this out-of-print title are as New.
