About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Closeup: Lessons in the Art of Seeing African Sculpture by Thompson, Jerry L.; Susan Vogel.

Description:

Large quarto. 194pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers. presents African art objects of exceptional aesthetic quality from an American collection and the Horstmann collection. But the book is more than an assemblage of masterpieces of African art. It is an exercise in how to look at African sculpture. This theme is fully developed in the essay and texts, and carries through to the photographs which are a veritable invitation to see African sculpture in a new way. It is demonstrated that the forms of African art suggest a particular relationship to the viewer; the images express an underlying assumption that making a sculpture may be more important than displaying it for a human viewer. Includes ethnological notes on the objects by Anne D'Alleva. Moderate shelf-wear and sunning along edges of wrappers. Previous owner's blind stamp on title page (Norman Hurst). Wrappers in overall good, interior in good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory #
