Why, and when, did Europeans visit Africa prior to colonial times? What sources of information do we have about early African art brought back to Europe, and where in Europe have such collections been preserved? African archaeological explorations are surveyed, and early dating systems and the validity of oral folklore for dating are questioned. The significance is highlighted of the booty looted in 1897 from Benin and brought to Britain, and of the interest awakened by early 20th century European artists with their new approach to artifacts previously termed ‘barbaric’ or ‘savage’ by Europeans. Frobenius’s systematic explorations of Africa are described, and the growth of sub-

Saharan art collections in Europe. Why African art is more diverse than its European counterpart is discussed and a few unifying characteristics of sub-Saharan art are identified.
