Featuring an array of magnificent artworks from the British Museum and beyond, African Art: Close-Up showcases some of the most exquisite works of wood, stone, ceramics, beadwork, textiles and metalwork from Africa – from the Mediterranean coast to the Cape, and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean.

Beginning with an introduction to the very nature of African art, each of the artworks is then explored within its wider cultural and historical context, with chapters relating to contemporary art, masquerade, specific materials such as cloth, precious materials, wood and iron, gender, tools, arms and armour.

Close-up views of individual details will allow the reader to see these pieces in a new way, while the author points out unexpected juxtapositions across a wide range of cultures, periods and media. Presenting a spectacular view of African art, this stunning book also offers tremendous insight into African culture.
