Product description

Review

'The Scramble for Art in Central Africa makes a major contribution to deepening our understanding of Central Africa through deepening our understanding of how our view of it has been constructed. Prospective readers should be further encouraged by the fact that the prose is clear and accessible throughout and the production excellent, with well-chosen illustrations.' The Times Literary Supplement

'The essays in this book provide us with a quite excellent introduction to the ways in which the art - or the craft - of 'others' was comprehended over time by western artists and scholars.' History Today

'… a volume which will certainly sit in many libraries amongst the essential reads of the history of collecting in all its applications.' Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

Book Description

This book is about the expeditions from Europe and North America to collect African art objects at the turn of the century. It describes fascinating encounters between traders, missionaries, ethnographers and African suppliers, and considers how these objects were used in the invention of Africa by the West.
