Look inside “Kongo: Power and Majesty,” a lavish new catalogue celebrating four centuries of history and visual culture of the Kingdom of Kongo (an area that includes present-day Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Angola). Over 170 objects attest to the enduring majesty of artistic traditions that flourished in the face of displacement, civil war, and the devastating effects of the slave trade.
Published to coincide with a landmark exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
