Summary: Mary Nooter Roberts (curator, UCLA Fowler Museum) and Allen F. Roberts (world arts and cultures, UCLA and director of the James S. Coleman African Studies Center) have compiled a substantial text describing the art and culture central to the Mouride Way in Senegal. The origins of this religious movement in the teachings of the Sufi mystic Sheikh Amadou Bamba (d.1927), the development of a religious art around him and his teachings, and an in-depth analysis of the art an mored architecture associated with him and his followers are the central themes of the book, which is heavily illustrated with color plates. The catalogue accompanies an exhibition at the Fowler and is distributed by the U. of Washington Press. less
