Selected Works from the Collection of The National Museum of African Art: Volume 1

National Museum of African Art

The National Museum of African Art began as a private educational institution in 1964 and became part of the Smithsonian Institution in 1979.

This volume includes highlights from the museum's holdings of traditional African art from throughout the continent, although the majority of works originated in sub-Saharan Africa. The 150 objects presented include sculpted masks and figures, regalia, items of personal adornment, textiles, furniture, and household objects. Each entry provides a discussion about the object's meaning and use and includes provenance and publication history. Fully illustrated in color, the handbook also includes maps, an extensive bibliography, and an introduction by Roy Sieber, America's foremost authority on traditional African art.
