Walker, Roslyn Adele. The Arts of Africa at the Dallas Museum of Art. Dallas/New Haven: Dallas Museum of Art/Yale University Press, 2010. Hardcover with dust jacket, 23.8 by 31.2 cm, 304 pp., illus. New, sealed in the publisher’s shrinkwrap. This oversized volume may require additional postage if mailing overseas. From the publisher: “This beautifully illustrated book showcases 110 objects from the Dallas Museum of Art’s world-renowned African collection. In contrast to Western “art for art’s sake,” tradition-based African art served as an agent of religion, social stability, or social control. Chosen both for their visual appeal and their compelling histories and cultural significance, the works of art are presented under the themes of leadership and status; the cycle of life; decorative arts; and influences (imported and exported). Also included are many fascinating photographs that show the context in which these objects were originally used.” (os) Dust jacket present.
