American Collections (N° 23080)

African art - with its powerful forms, intricate symbolism and formal inventiveness - has only recently been recognized as one of the great artistic traditions of humankind. This rich tradition is highlighted here in a remarkable selection of exceptional works. Nearly 1,600 objects are illustrated, each accompanied by information on style, use, meaning and cultural origin. Styles from Western Sudan, Coastal West Africa, West Central Africa, Central Africa, and Eastern and Southern Africa are presented individually by section. A thought-provoking introduction helps readers understand the importance of African art as a form of human creative expression, its relationship to contemporary Western art, and the controversies surrounding it in the world museums. Newcomers to the field as well as professionals will find many answers to their questions in the text and captions. This comprehensive survey of some 230 styles of African art is an essential reference for scholars, teachers, students, curators, collectors and dealers.
