Galerie Le Minotaure, in collaboration with Galerie Alain De Monbrison, offers a face-to-face encounter between the primitive arts and the different stages of cubism and of the abstract art.
The primitive forms, by their simplicity and power, fascinated Matisse, Picasso and launched a real craze at the beginning of the 20th century among painters, intellectuals and merchantsa who started to considere them to be more than mere fetishes. This fertile exchange reappears with force in “The temptation of Eve”, watercolor of 1910 by Baranoff Rossiné. Correspondences that we find in the rare self-portrait of Scheiber, characterised by its great strength, with salient features, having great similarities with the expressionism of an Urhobo mask.
