Publisher's description: The Donald and Adele Hall Collection of African art is one of the art world's best-kept secrets. Donald Hall, Chairman of the Board of Hallmark Cards, and his wife, Adele, have long been active participants in the cultural life of Kansas City, Missouri, helping to develop the collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and fundraising for its expansion. But over the past 50 years, the Halls have also been privately building a collection of African art. Now one of the best in the nation, the Donald and Adele Hall Collection contains more than 140 masks, sculptures, ceramics and textiles. Beautifully designed and rigorously researched, A Private Passion documents the collection and its development. Every object in the collection is reproduced in full color and contextualized with a short text and information about the work's provenance and its exhibition and publication history.
