Description

The Ayliffee Museum is a African Art Museum, specializing in African Pop Art.

A typical example of the Ayliffee's African Pop Art collection.

History

Founded in 1898 by Reginald Ayliffee, an 'old Africa hand' and former District Commissioner of Rumbabwe, the Museum's original purpose was to 'scientifically prove' that the Negroid African hominid sub-type was inferior to Anglo-Aryan homosapiens.

When such theories were scientifically disproved, the Museum became an archaic embarrassment to Osmondville's own district commission, and during the Swinging 60s it was converted into a community arts centre for multicultural artists living in the area. The most famous, Amdi Wa R'hol, donated a selection of his famous pop art prints and these form the heart of the Museum's modern African art collection.

Ayliffee's own history as a brutal tyrant, who single-handedly hunted the Rumbabwean lesser spotted rhino into extinction and frequently whipped his manservant into a coma, was hurriedly airbrushed out. Ayliffee is now fondly misremembered as a walrus-moustached pioneer of education for Africans, according to his most famous quotation, "That'll teach the b______s a lesson they won't forget in a hurry."
