After the publication in 2006, for the opening of the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Masterpieces, sold more than 50 000 copies, here is the publication of a second album, highly anticipated, devoted to the most beautiful masks of the museum.
This choice of 100 masks combines both key works and unknown works, out of the reserves for the occasion. This world tour shows an original facet of the universality of the museum's collections.
Accurate and accessible to all, the texts dedicated to each mask give the essential keys to discover the conditions of their creation and their function.
100 remarkable masks of the collections, mostly unknown to the general public, out of the reserves of the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac.
