Nigerian Arts Digital Library: Enwonwu’s art collection
Enwonwu Art Collection, phase one of the Nigerian Arts Digital Library is created to show case the beautiful art works by one of the first generation artists of the Nigerian art genealogy. Ben Enwonwu was a prolific painter and sculptor, whose realistic style, was oftentimes adapted to indigenous themes. His works adorn several key architectural landmarks in Nigeria.
This digital library is intended to support, preserve and divulge the superb scholarship in African Art to the world of art which has long neglected the work of modern African artists and their search for forms of modernist expression. It is also intended to stimulate numerous dissertations and monographs on modern African art and artists by the younger generation of artists.
