Synopsis : Prince Twins Seven-Seven is not only one of Africa's most famous contemporary artists and the leader of the Osogbo School of Nigerian artists, but he is known as the modern master of the Yoruba tradition in art. His work has been exhibited on every continent, is collected by major museums throughout the world, and in 2005, Prince was named UNESCO Artist for Peace. Part biography and part artist's catalogue, Henry Glassie blends life and art to create a vivid portrait of an extraordinary artist, discussing tradition and innovation in Prince's art, the development of his personal style, the force of the supernatural in Nigerian life, and the hard times of the immigrant artist in the United States.

Critique: "The triumphs and sufferings, the complexities of a brilliant and bedeviled artist are given full voice with Glassie's usual perceptive and sympathetic flair. Glassie has given us yet another finely wrought work of art about artists and their works." --Philip Peek, co-editor of African Folklore

"A compelling study of a contemporary African artist, this volume is wonderfully insightful and immensely readable." --Doran H. Ross, author of Wrapped in Pride
