Anthropology of art is a sub-field in social anthropology dedicated to the study of art in different cultural contexts. The anthropology of art focuses on historical, economic and aesthetic dimensions in non-Western art forms, including what is known as 'tribal art'. Franz Boas, one of the pioneers of modern anthropology, conducted many field studies of the arts, helping create a foundation to the field.

The anthropology of art includes within its ambit the anthropological study of any aspect of artistic production, very broadly understood. It is primarily concerned with the diverse social dimensions of visual phenomena, as opposed to musical or literary ones: it is about visual art in particular, rather than the arts in general.

Rock art is one of the most visible and geographically widespread of cultural expressions, and it spans much of the period of our species’ existence. Rock art also provides rare and often unique insights into the minds and visually creative capacities of our ancestors and how selected rock outcrops with distinctive images were used to construct symbolic landscapes and shape worldviews. Over the past 150 years, archaeologists have studied ancient arts on rock surfaces, both out in the open and within caves and rock shelters, and social anthropologists have revealed how people today use art in their daily lives.

Jeremy Coote, Anthony Shelton. This collection of essays on anthropological approaches to art and aesthetics is the first in its field to be published for some time. In recent years a number of new galleries of non-Western art have been opened, many exhibitions of non-Western art held, and new courses in the anthropology of art established. This collection is part of and complements these developments, contributing to the general resurgence of interest in what has been until recently a comparatively neglected field of academic study and intellectual debate

Cultural anthropology is one of the four major fields of anthropology (the others being biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and archaeology)

Cultural anthropology is one of the four major fields of anthropology (the others being biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and archaeology). It emerged as an area of study after the era of European exploration when it became apparent around the world how diverse human experiences can be. What distinguishes cultural anthropology most clearly from other related disciplines is its holistic emphasis. Anthropologists view culture in terms of a set of systems, which interact with each other and together make it possible for cultural practices to be perpetuated through generations.

Unlike previous works on "primitive" art, this collection resolutely grounds itself in anthropology. The contributors draw on current theory as well as analyses of classical anthropological topics such as myth, ritual, and exchange, in order to further the reader's understanding of particular aesthetic traditions in their cultural and historical contexts. Included is an analysis of cross-cultural applications of such concepts as art and aesthetics.
