Bronzes in African art
This book presents bronze objects from West Africa: weights to weigh gold, pendants, rings, necklaces, etc. as well as some particularly rare gold objects from the collection of Max Itzikovitz, one of the world's greatest collectors of African art. The book presents more than 150 color photographs and an introductory text on the gold trade and the history of the societies concerned: agni, lorhon, gan, ashanti...
The historical part is enriched with the first photographs taken at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 21st century as well as old paintings allowing a better understanding of this centuries-old art.
