Between 1890 and 1918, Western colonial expansion in Africa led to the looting of many pieces of sub-Saharan African art, artifacts or natural heritage that were subsequently brought to Europe and displayed. These objects entered the collections of natural history museums, art museums (both encyclopedic and specialist) and private collections in Europe and the United States.

African art, the visual arts of native Africa, particularly sub-Saharan Africa, including such media as sculpture, painting, pottery, rock art, textiles, masks, personal decoration, and jewelry. For more general explorations of media, see individual media articles (. General characteristics. It is difficult to give a useful summary of the main characteristics of the art of sub-Saharan Africa. The variety of forms and practices is so great that the attempt to do so results in a series of statements that turn out to be just as true of, for example, Western art.

Thoroughly enchanted book and a tremendous value. I have many large and expensive books on African art and artifacts, but I have to say that this one is quite special. It is a great introduction with some great pictures and even better descriptions. There are also amazing line drawings for those who enjoy symbolism. Sometimes the older books, which might be considered "dated" are actually "timeless".

This book focuses on sub-Saharan African art that ended up with European collectors. Even split from their context, these are striking objects. This book attempts to fill in the context for the objects.

The art in this book is mostly impermanent, made of wood or fabric or grasses - they do not survive long on the steamy heat of Africa. Very few objects have survived for archeologists to uncover, very few dwellings either. Archeologists go searching for large kingdoms, but large kingdoms were not prevalent in Africa -see note page 12. There is a breathless rush to prove otherwise - to counteract the European belief that Africa had no civilizations.

Breaking this down, the book makes the distinction that sub-Saharan Africa was filled with long-lasting, stable cultures that transmitted themselves through public rituals. But these in only very rare cases developed into "civilizations" with giant architecture, writing, widescale agriculture, specialization of employment, etc. Where it did so, "civilization" developed only in contact with Mediterranean (Niger River and Mali people) and Mesopotamian (east coast and Zimbabwe).

This book emphasizes culture. What if, perhaps, African civilization was based on gatherings for performance and participation in rituals, developing different concepts of time and space, where the extreme arbitrary violence of kings demonstrated the power that was available and flowing through the people. ( p13)

The book showcases no strict pantheon, but rather a borrowing of gods to produce terror or laughter among the gathered. The gods played together with the ancestors and all were honored through the masquerade.

The masks are non-representational and have a modernist quality.

There is a good map on page 30-31 and 39 color plates with very good descriptions.

Interesting book.
