On display are paintings, woodcuts, batiks, appliqués and metalworks. They are contemporary works with a mainly traditional theme. The artists all live in Oshogbo, a town in the Yoruba-speaking part of Nigeria. The ‘Oshogbo School’ came to international prominence in the late 50s and has remained a vibrant part of the Nigerian cultural scene ever since. We have works by the pioneers of this movement as well as by their talented successors.
