Based on a set of mostly unpublished archives, this book focuses on the role played by art dealers at the turn of the last century in the definition, promotion and circulation of African objects as artworks, in Europe and the United States.
A specialist of the reception of African arts during the first decades of the 20th century, Yaëlle Biro is Associate Curator for African Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
