Description


This book examines Th odore G ricault's images of black men, women and children who suffered slavery's trans-Atlantic passage in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, including his 1819 painting The Raft of the Medusa.

The book focuses on G ricault's depiction of black people, his approach towards slavery, and the voices that advanced or denigrated them. By turning to documents, essays and critiques, both before and after Waterloo (1815), and, most importantly, G ricault's own oeuvre, this study explores the fetters of slavery that Gericault challenged--alongside a growing number of abolitionists--overtly or covertly.

This book will be of interest to scholars in art history, race and ethnic studies and students of modernism.
