France Agrees To Return Stolen African Artworks To Benin

0
AFRICANGLOBE - At the height of its colonial empire, France controlled large swaths of the African continent, removing art produced there for display in museums in the French capital, Paris, and elsewhere. Objects that arrived in France went on to influence the work of major figures in European art, such as Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso, and Italian painter and sculptor, Amedeo Modigliani. According to the report, about 90 percent of African art is currently housed in museums and private collections outside the continent, including statues, thrones and manuscripts.
