Overview

Africa: The Art of a Continent by Cornel West, Ekpo Eyo, Suzanne P. Blier, Peter A. Mark

Spectacular sculptures in wood, bronze, and stone, as well as mural painting, ceremonial pieces, ceramics, jewelry, and textiles provide stunning proof that although these works were not made to be "art, " they can be enjoyed by Western viewers purely on their aesthetic merits. This text touches on well-known aspects of African art, as well as works from the Guinea Coast, Sahel and Savanna, and Northern Africa. 130 illustrations, 110 in full color.
