Collection: Zoumana Sane

Senegalese artist Zoumana Sane worked as part of a contemporary art movement in Senegal that heralded the modernization of the newly independent nation. Artists used pan-African symbols that also spoke to international audiences through their recognizable forms and media such as poetry, painting, and tapestry. Senegal's first president, Leopold Sedar Senghor, served from 1960 to 1980, and during this time he encouraged the distinct African-ness of Senegalese artists, and felt they could serve as representative's of the country's new nationalism.
