Lovesick Exoticism

The Collection of Non-European Ethnic Art of Adolf Hoffmeister

Adolf Hoffmeister (1902–1973) became one of the most remarkable Czech artists of the twentieth century thanks to his prolific activities. The publication includes, for the first time ever, a comprehensive list of all the objects from Hoffmeister’s collection of non-European ethnic art, bringing together indigenous objects from the two American continents, as well as from Africa, Oceania and Indonesia.
