Physical Description The art of the Fang, the BaTeke, the BaKota and other African peoples is extremely vigorous and shows a brilliant sense of form. The substantial aesthetic impact their works had upon the development of 20th-century Western art - on Picasso, Derain, Braque and Modigliani, among others - continues to this day. This survey reveals the astonishing variety and expressive power of a continent that contains more distinct peoples and cultures than any other. The revised edition incorporates new research and modern place names, as well as extended and updated references
