Palmer Hayden, Fetiche et Fleurs, 1931-1932
It’s interesting how Hayden is showing objects of Africa but unlike Aaron Douglass, he is not showing the African people or their stories. Even though he is influenced by the connection to African art, he is not changing his style because of it. We can almost think of this work in the way that art objects themselves become part of the diaspora.
