Sign in Create an account. This collection of essays on anthropological approaches to art and aesthetics is the first in its easthetics to be published for some time. In recent years a number of new galleries of non-Western art have been opened, many exhibitions antropology non-Western art held, and new courses in the anthropology of art established.
