Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Acquired directly from the artist;
    A private collection, Senegal.

    In 1959 Leopold Senghor, the philosopher and later first president of Senegal, saw some of Tall's drawings on exhibition in Paris and encouraged him to pursue fine arts.

    Following this encounter, Senghor promoted the young Tall, supporting his application for a grant to attend the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and then from 1962-63 at the Craft School at Sèvres, where Tall studied painting, serigraphy and tapestry.
