Rate this:
In this successful and very ambitious volume, the vast topic of African art is usefully surveyed on a region-by-region basis, with the art of each region surveyed chronologically from the earliest known examples to art of our own day. Each chapter comprises, therefore, ancient art, the issue of Christian influence (when applicable), Islamic art, colonial and post-colonial art, with consideration given to the production of art for the tourist trade. The authors (all are art historians of African art at American universities) have produced a readable, impressive volume saturated with the rich history and culture that give meaning to the works of art and architecture they have carefully assembled, all depicted in good reproductions within the text.
