Artistes d'Abomey

Historians of african art have studied the question of anonymity, as well as the social and historical position of the modellers of shapes and images to which the western definition of art does not always seem to apply.

A considerable amount of study has resulted in a wide range of situations regarding the status of the artist in sub-saharan africa.

Historians, technologists, curators, art historians, collectors and patron all take their turn to inform the reader on the quite singular position of artists in Abomey..
