Luluwa (N° 19379) Deposit sale

Living between the Lubudi and Kasai Rivers in south central Democratic Republic of Congo, the Luluwa are known for their intricate figurative carvings, masks and decorative arts.
Constantin Petridis, director of the Department of African and American Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, draws on first-hand reports written by explorers, missionaries, colonial officials, anthropologists and art historians between 1880 and 1970 to situate Luluwa art in the environment where it was originally produced and used.
Through the analysis of published and unpublished sources, as well as collectibles and archival photographs, this monograph sheds new light on the historical context of one of Central Africa's most spectacular artistic heritages.
