South Africa: The Art of a Nation

£18.00

Product description

In recent decades, archaeologists in South Africa have discovered some of the world's oldest artworks - extraordinary examples of humankind's first artistic endeavours. Today, South Africa enjoys a vibrant, often politicized contemporary art scene, one that draws on both the recent and the more distant past to comment on the present. Taking as its point of departure the earliest known artistic tradition in Southern Africa 100,000 years ago, South Africa: the Art of a Nation explores the history of South Africa through a selection of its artworks, playing particular attention not only to their relationship to one another, but also to their connections to key episodes in the nation's evolution.
Beautifully illustrated 2016 paperback edition in excellent condition. Weight 1.1 kg
