Alexandre Iacovleff (1887-1938) was born in Russia but became a French citizen. He achieved his reputation in the West as an ethnographical draughtsman: in 1925 he accompanied the Citroën Central Africa Expedition as an official artist and in 1931 did the same for the Citroën Trans-Asiatic Expedition, collaborations that resulted in superb depictions of native types, rituals and scenes. This catalogue was published on the occasion of an exhibition held at Musée des Années 30, Boulogne-Billancourt, March 31-August 14, 2004. Illustrated with 158 plates, most in color.
