Synopsis: This volume is a study of images of blacks by white artists, European and American, that were painted, drawn, modeled, and carved from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth. Some are among the most famous works of art of the period - Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa, Delacroix's Death of Sardanapalalus and Women of Algiers, Turner's The Slave Ship, Winslow Homer's The Gulf Stream. But the majority, which include works by Austrian, Belgian, Danish, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swiss artists, as well as American, British, and French, will be familiar only to specialist students. Several are here reproduced for the first time. But all have something to tell us about white attitude toward blacks during the period. This was the period in which slavery was abolished by one Western country after another, ideological racism was formulated, and Africa was colonized by Europeans.
