Format: Hardcover
One of the most complete general works on African Art and well worth purchasing for detailed information on the variation in art form, tribe, country and art style in Africa. Almost full tribal location information and regionalised art details makes this book a must for the serious collector and student on the subject. From early Egyptian to more recent times, it is a book you have to read several times to understand that no one can ever know the true depth and complexity within the African Art world. A good all round reference book on a much missunderstood and underated art form.

This is the catalogue of the 1996 Royal Academy 'Africa: the art of a continent' exhibition which, I believe, was the first UK exhibition of art from across the many nations of Africa. It is arranged geographically, is sumptuously illustrated and accompanied by informed, thoughtful and helpful narratives that give an historical context to the art. It's a wonderful book, but with more than 600 pages, it's also very heavy!
