Edited by David Bindman and Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
This series, The Image of the Black in Western Art is the culmination of a research project originally instituted by the major art patron, Dominique de Menil. Her collaboration on this significant project with Harvard University Press and the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African-American Research is unprecedented.
This volume investigates the portrayal of blacks in nineteenth century Europe and the Americas, dilineating discussions of slavery and abolitionism in those representations.
