Although he never set foot in Africa, Picasso had a strong inclination for African art and throughout the course of his life, the artist assembled a vast collection of statues and masks from various parts of the continent. His collection amassed over 100 different objects.

Picasso’s private collection can now be found in museums in Paris such as the Louvre, Musée Quai Branly and the Musée Picasso, as well as in the private collections of members of Picasso’s family. [x]

As far as can I know, no efforts have been made to return any of these pieces of artwork to their country of origin.

Picasso also denied any evidence of African influences in his artwork. [x]

    Defend him if you want, but I will NEVER honor his art if he can’t admit this even in his grave.
