Charles Ratton, the preeminent dealer of indigenous cultures’ art in the 20th century, propelled the evolution of taste in this type of art among Western audiences. With close ties to the Parisian avant-garde, including André Breton, Tristan Tzara and Paul Éluard, Ratton helped to elevate the status of so-called 'primitive' arts, which he considered worthy of equal attention in the canons of world art. Ratton has recently been the subject of new scholarship, including the publication and exhibition at the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris entitled Charles Ratton, L’invention des arts “primitifs,” held in 2013.
