Description

 

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.

 

The collection of essays here explore the renderings of African figures as an expression of ethnographic racism, often emphasizing "civilization" versus "savagery" and perpetuating misrepresentation in the nineteenth century.
