Details

Published to accompany an exhibition at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum in Florida in 2017, this study explores European approaches to race and gender during the 18th and 19th centuries and the relationship between European artists and the ‘expressive possibilities of blackness’. The exhibits, 31 very varied portraits, include famous figures such as Anne Zingha and Alexandre Dumas as well as anonymous slaves in America and people of colonial Africa.
