"Of course you would not want a canoe…"
This catalogue was edited on the occasion of the exhibition presented at University of the Witwatersrand Art Galleries from Johannesburg from May to July
It includes 6 essays, one of which recounts the story of Burton and his wife and their years in the Congo. In the late 1920s and 1930s, missionary W. F. P. Burton posted to Mwanza, Congo, made ethnographic and photographic collections of the Luba. His collections became part of the University of the Witwatersrand's Museum of Ethnology.
