The Arts of Africa at the Dallas Museum of Art

In this new book, 110 objects from the Dallas Museum of Art’s world renowned collection of African art are showcased and placed in interpretative context. Against the notion of “art for art’s sake” these objects are explained for their religious and social agency. Written by curator Rosyln Adele Walker, The Arts of Africa also includes several photographs of the objects in context of original usage.
