The African Collection of the Neuberger Museum of Art provides an introduction to the richness and complexity of the artistic traditions of Africa. Focusing on central Africa, the collection spans a broad geographic range from Mali to Mozambique, offering artistic insight into over thirty cultures.
Of the major works on display, many come from the collection of the late Lawrence Gussman, a notable collector and resident of Scarsdale, New York. Among them are a very rare harp, indeed the only anthropomorphic harp of the Tsogo peoples of Gabon known to be in an American museum, and two forceful Fang reliquary guardian figures.
