CITY GUIDE / PARIS / ARTS & CULTURE / THE INVENTION OF PRIMITIVE ARTS AT THE MUSéE DU QUAI BRANLY, PARIS

Charles Ratton (1897-1986) was the Charles Saatchi of his time, ahead of the curve with his love of art and antiquities from Africa, America and Oceania to the extent that he helped invent the notion of primitive arts. Discover how he elevated what were once considered “anthpological artefacts” to the status of masterpieces by juxtaposing pieces such as Man Ray’s blanket-wrapped sewing machine with masks from Alaska and New Guinea in this fascinating show at the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris.
