520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. Gathering together over 160 paintings, watercolours, drawing and prints, this book offers an unprecedented examination of the shifting iconography of slavery in British and European art between 1760 and 1840. <br/>Full of original insights that cast a new light on these highly charged images, this book reconsiders how enslaved people were depicted within a historical context in which truth was deeply contested.<br/><br/>Sarah Thomas is lecturer in the Department of History of Art at Birkbeck, University of London.
