To enter the world of African art is to enter a series of richly diverse and creative societies.

From the glories of West African sculpture to Zulu power figures, the Christian-influenced art of Ethiopia and Muslim Sudan, the so-called Dark Continent has an amazing and impressive artistic heritage.

Only in last century, however, with the growing appreciation of non-Western artistic traditions, has African art - and above all African sculpture - come to be recognised as a major cultural phenomenon in its own right.

Until their discovery by European artists such as Picasso and Matisse, the artifacts of the African kingdoms were regarded simply as colourful colonial trophies or museum curios.

African Art, gloriously illustrated with over 80 colour plates, shows the full range of African creativity, from sophisticated bronze sculpture to elaborate shell and bead headdresses, from carved wooden thrones to richly colourful textiles.

This lavishly illustrated and thoroughly researched survey provides a fascinating introduction to a diverse, rewarding and long-neglected subject, and will prove an irresistible companion for any art lover.
