A bird flies over African lands accompanied by an insect, coming straight from the painter's Cobra period. A travelling artist, Guillaume Corneille made a nod to his beginnings in 1999. His passion for Africa awakened very early in the 1940s when he decided to reproduce Paul Klee's trip to Tunisia. Passionate about Levi-Strauss's readings and the first cinematographic reports on Africa, Guillaume Corneille and his first wife Henny Riemens embarked in 1956 on the crazy project of crossing the continent in a Jeep to be in total immersion with the different ethnic groups and landscapes. It was after the death of his first wife that he decided to return to Africa one last time. The work "L’oiseau né du paysage" followed this journey.
