Cantor Arts Center - Africa Collection

Of the nearly 2500 objects in the African collection, about 1300 works originate from ancient Egyptian and Coptic traditions. The remaining works, about 1200, were made in diverse sub-Saharan cultures during the late 19th to the mid 20th centuries. The Cantor’s sub-Saharan collection is especially strong in figurative arts made mostly by western and central African artists. Also represented are utilitarian objects and body adornment made by East African artists, as well as a large selection of metal, leather, and basketry made by the contemporary Tuareg artists of Niger.
