The École des Beaux Arts in Abidjan has fallen on hard economic times; money and opportunities are scarce. Much local talent has to emigrate to France and elsewhere to survive. Twenty-six Ivoirien artists are showcased or mentioned, together with illustrations of their works. Also included is a note on the Vohou Vohou ("putting anything and everything together") group.
