Among the most prized achievements of African art are the naturalistic terracotta sculptures produced for the royal Yoruba courts from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries. Also renowned for their beauty and craftsmanship are Yoruba ceremonial swords, elaborate beaded crowns, wood and ivory carvings, embroidered textiles, jewelry, and architectural works." "With twenty-seven color reproductions and eighty-one photographs - many published for the first time - accompanying essays by eighteen of the world's foremost Yoruba cultural historians, this book offers the most complete exploration of Yoruba artists and their work to date. Documenting the full spectrum of Yoruba culture, this definitive work extends beyond the visual arts to examine, for the first time, the Yoruba use of such oral traditions as singing and chanting, as well as drumming, dance, and other artistic expressions, including an Ifa divination ritual that involves an interplay of arts." "The Yoruba Artist presents the latest in field-research and critical methodology, pointing to new directions in African cultural scholarship. The book explains the intricate linkage of a variety of Yoruba art forms and the role of oriki (praise poetry) songs in the transmission of knowledge. In one essay, Wande Abimbola illustrates how an extended praise poem serves as a source for knowledge concerning a famous eighteenth-century carver in the Old Oyo area. In another, Oba Solomon Babayemi discusses the relationship between oral history preserved by singers and drummers and the architectural history of the palace at Gbongan." "In appraising individual figures such as Olowe of Isethis century's most important Yoruba artist - the contributors underscore particular oral and visual codes that identify authorship. Discussing the transition to current cultural forms, the essayists also show how contemporary artists in West Africa and the Americas have revitalized Yoruba aesthetic traditions."--BOOK JACKET+-+35983451063243932ocn711045520book20110.50LaGamma, AlisaHeroic Africans : legendary leaders, iconic sculpturesExhibition catalogsOver the centuries, artists across sub-Saharan Africa have memorialized eminent figures in their societies using an astonishingly diverse repertoire of naturalistic and abstract sculptural idioms. Adopting complex aesthetic fromulations, they idealized their subjects but also added specific details--such as emblems of rank, scarification patterns, and elaborate coiffures--in order to evoke the individuals represented. Imbued with the essence of their formidable subjects, these works played an essential role in reifying ties with important ancestors at critical moments of transition. Often their transfer from one generation to the next was a prerequisite for conferring legitimacy upon the leaders who followed. The arrival of Europeans as traders, then as colonizers, led to the dislocation of many of these sculptures from their original sites, as well as from the contexts in which they were conceived; thus, today, they are seen primarily as timeless representations of generic archetypes. "Heroic Africans" reexamines the sculptures in terms of the individuals who inspired them and the cultural values that informed them, providing insight into the hidden meaning and inspiration behind these great artistic achievements+-+693026558525613ocn000397437book19690.74Bühler, AlfredKunst der Südsee.

By concentrating on major figures from Zen history and legend and on some outstanding prelates of the medieval Zen clergy, it is intended to bring these masters into the clearest possible focus, to "re-animate" them by means of their extant works and the interpretative representation of their physical appearances. This new study reveals the intrinsic worth of Zen architecture, sculpture, writings, and paintings themselves, as well as their cultural and historic setting. The book has the character of a richly illustrated compendium of Zen art."--Jacket2295ocn006143455book19800.77Brinker, HelmutTreasures from the Rietberg MuseumExhibition catalogs2011ocn819289715book20120.63Die Schönheit des Augenblicks : Frauen im japanischen HolzdruckExhibition catalogs"Fascination with color woodblock prints, a typical Japanese art form remains undiminished until today.
