Marquand Books recently had the pleasure of producing a catalogue of the Donald and Adele Hall Collection of African Art. The Halls have been active patrons of the arts for decades, particularly in their native Kansas City, and have also built a collection of African art that has grown into one of the finest of its kind in America.
The collection now includes more than 170 objects, including masks, sculptures, ceramics, and textiles. A Private Passion: The Donald and Adele Hall Collection of African Art features a color image of each work, accompanied by a short discussion of the object’s provenance, form, and significance written by David A. Binkley, former Chief Curator at the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution.
The 304-page book was designed by Jeff Wincapaw and includes over 230 color images. The book is distributed by D.A.P.; visit their website to purchase a copy.
