Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This sumptuous book presents important artworks from Africa, of Yoruba, Igbo, Urhobo, Cross River, Benin, and Benue River Valley origins. Sculptures from throughout Nigeria as well as Edo/Benin bronze and brass sculptures are featured, all from a major African-owned collection of African art. The analysis of this unique collection provides significant insight into an unexplored aspect of African art and the role and relevance of African collectors in shaping discourse on the subject.

Synopsis:

Published to accompany an exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art, this book showcases 85 exceptional works from Southern Africa. Whether figurative or abstract, carved out of wood, ivory, or horn, or made of cloth, glass beads, or clay, these exquisitely designed functional objects include snuff containers, pipes, headrests, staffs, sticks, beer vessels, and beaded garments.
