A history of visual arts in Africa: sculpture, painting and architecture; textiles, ceramics and other household objects; jewellery, ceremonial and religious clothing and body art. The author examines the major influences on the African culture and art over the centuries: the civilizations of Egypt and the Mediterranean coast, the expansion of Islam, the Bantu migrations, the evolution of the tribal system, the arrival of the Europeans and the Christianity and the development of trade within Africa and beyond. He then examines the earliest known forms of art, prehistoric rock art found in several regions and artefacts of the ancient Nubian, Aksumite and Nok cultures. Next he goes on to consider the development of the visual arts in a series of individual regions ranging from the Sahara to the Cape, from Ethiopia and the Swahili coast in the East to the Nigel Delta and Benin in the West.
