Abstract:

"Han Coray (1880-1974) was one of the first and most important European collectors of African art. He acquired his collection for the most part from the famous Parisian art dealer Paul Guillaume in the first half of the 1920s. This extensive collection of African art, one of the finest in the world, was purchased by Zurich University's Volkerkundemuseum in 1940. African Art from the Han Coray Collection 1916-1928 contains a selection of 202 of the collection's most important works, presented in beautiful illustrations and accompanied by informative texts. Featured are not only wooden sculptures and masks, but also ivories, textiles, and metal works. West and central African artistic traditions are presented, with a special focus on central African art."--BOOK JACKET.
