Item description for African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection by Bryna Freyer Christine Mullen Kreamer...

Ninety renowned masterpieces of African art that inspired artists at the Walt Disney studios.

In 2005, the Walt Disney Company donated its Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection to the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art in Washington, D.C. Considered one of the world's finest collections of African art, the Disney-Tishman Collection contains iconic pieces dating from the fifteenth to twentieth centuries and showcases art that represents seventy-five peoples and twenty countries. This book explores the many ways that the collection reflects Africa's rich history and culture and focuses particularly on objects used in performance, rituals, and as emblems of power.

Figures carved in stone, wood, and ivory; stools, masks, crowns, jewelry, and hunting tools--each object is presented in vivid color plates and accompanied by texts providing information about the objects' history, uses, and materials. This beautiful book accompanies the first public presentation of the collection in the past twenty years, permitting a new generation to experience one of America's national treasures.

African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection (Purchased on 06/25/2008)   Jul 29, 2008
This is a must have for anyone interested in African art. Informative of the pieces and people who make them.
A Masterpiece of African Art Books  May 19, 2007
Wow. What a triumph. I saw this show at the Smithsonian, and bought the book in the giftshop. Once I had time to read this book, I realized that I had only really understood about 10% of the show. So I went back to the exhibit and with this catalogue in hand, really gained a true insight into the show.

The writing is clear (at least for this layman) and the pictures are sharp and show great detail. I first picked up one of Kreamer's books after seeing a show on Art of the Sub-Saharian region at the High Museum in Atlanta some 20 years ago, and have made a point of seeing her shows and the accompanying books. Well worth your time!
