Olbrechts founded the stylistic study of African Art. He was among the first to identify the hand of an individual artist. He also laid the basis for the discipline known today as the 'anthropology of art'. But much of the groundbreaking work of this Belgian ethnologist and scholar of art was published in Dutch and at an international level has still not been adequately assessed. Now, in 15 wide-ranging essays by eleven authors, this richly illustrated book explores Olbrecht's pioneering role in the history of African art studies." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped.
