The article sheds light on the relation between primitive and modern art. The relation between primitive and modern art are as old as the Eiffel Tower, exactly, for the Eiffel Tower was built to commemorate the universal Exhibition of 1889, and, at that exhibition there were numerous anthropological objects which attracted the attention of the artists of Paris. Until that time, and indeed till long after that time, anthropologists and ethnologists had been completely blind to the aesthetic appeal of the objects which they piled up in rich confusion in theft museums.
