Métallurgie de l’ Afrique de l’Ouest / Metalworking in West Africa

Peter de Groote

Ferragus & Lannoo, 2020


African metal artists, blacksmiths, and iron casters have historically not been considered true artists. This catalogue is the result of a collaboration between collector Christine Waelbroeck van Gaver and author Peter de Groote and aims to re-establish the overlooked artistic merit of the metal arts from West Africa. It includes images of 264 objects made of copper, iron, and tin, many of which are extremely rare.
