Summary
"One of the leading collections of African art in the world, the Africa Collection at Berlin's Ethnological Museum contains unique groups of objects such as the Ife terra-cotta sculptures (excavated by Leo Frobenius), rare Benin bronzes, masterpieces from the Cameroon Grasslands, Gabun, and the Lower Congo, and East African sculptures and masks." "Africa: Art and Culture examines the highlights in this incomparable collection. A team of international scholars analyzes the 200 objects selected, placing them within the cultural and historical contexts of the different regions, and provides an insight into the ways European and African art have traded influences over the centuries. The result is an overview of African art, which reflects recent research, while providing a stunning presentation of masterpieces from the unique Africa Collection at the Ethnological Museum in Berlin."--Jacket
