Africa in the Limelight
In this year of commemoration of the major African independences, and especially that
of the Congo, the former Belgian colony, it has deemed appropriate to illustrate how this
particular country, but also in the broad sense Central and tropical Africa around it, inspired the vision of Western travelling artists (painters, sculptors, photographers) who went over these territories to explore their landscapes and marvel at their peoples at a key moment in their history (the 1920s and 1930s), often described as the “golden age” of colonisation.
