African Art

African art had strong geometric shapes and solid lines, this fascinated many artists in Europe who were becoming tired with traditional European arts. When explorers first brought the pieces back to Europe Missionaries displayed the work in the churches to show who they were going to convert to Christianity. Not long after the pieces started to come back to Europe many artists were becoming interested in the way that Africans created art. This inspired many artists to start and experiment with African art. Some of the artists who experimented and liked the way African art portrayed things were Geaorges Braque, Henri Matisse, Maurice de Vlaminck, and Pablo Picasso. Many of Pablo's paintings are known for geometric shapes and things of that sort.
