Africa has also produced some of the most important masterpieces, which in addition to the function they served within the societies that produced them, are known to have exerted significant influence in the making of the 20th century European modern art. Yet, to this day the study of African art and its history are non-existent within the curricula of African schools, universities, and even African art academies. African art textbooks designed and produced to address such needs are virtually nonexistent. To this day, the study of African art remains largely a Western discipline. The scholarship of African art has been the product of western sensibility and an expression of western aesthetic responses to African visual culture.
