The New African Portraiture

The Shariat Collections



ISBN: 9783753303062 Category:


This catalogue brings together leading figures from a generation of thrilling figurative artists of African origin. The more than 20 artists shown in this catalogue are based on the African continent and across the diaspora. They explore complex questions of identity, aesthetics and art history. Through compelling portraiture their work invites interrogation of how the Black figure has often been misrepresented or overlooked in the Western painting tradition.
