African Master Carvers: Known and Famous

Published: June 27, 2017

Entering its final weeks at the Cleveland Museum of Art is African Master Carvers: Known and Famous, an exhibition addressing the false assumption that African artists who created tradition-based art were anonymous. Through fifteen stellar examples from different cultural regions in West, Central, and Southern Africa, the exhibition explores the lives and works of a select group of master carvers who enjoyed recognition and sometimes even fame during their lifetimes. Also included are the artists’ biographies and, when available, their portrait photographs.
