Surveying an art form of central importance in the painting traditions of modern Senegal, this catalogue provides excellent color reproductions of 150 reverse-glass compositions produced in the West African nation from the early 20th century through the 1990s, including portraits, depictions of historical events, traditional Islamic religious images and many renderings of scenes of daily life. Brief descriptive commentaries on most of the exhibited works augment a substantial essay that discusses the origins and the stylistic, technical and thematic development of reverse-glass painting in Senegal while profiling the leading contemporary artists associated with the medium.
