Cleveland: Cleveland Museum of Art, 2003. Eggplant and color-illustrated wraps with tan and lavender lettering. 128 pp. Mainly color illustrations. "Even before its doors opened to the public in 1916 the Cleveland Museum of Art had begun to collect the art of Africa, and in 2003 reaffirms its commitment with an innovative reinstallation of a gallery of sub-Saharan African art. Enriched with many field photographs and much ethnographical information, this presentation also emphasizes the extraordinary formal invention and spiritual power of the objects. This volume celebrates the new energy and clarity brought to the collection with discussions of forty-two important works, newly photographed and generously illustrated, a concise introduction, and a list of references that range widely through the literature of the field."--Jacket.
