The planter's prospect : privilege and slavery in plantation paintings by John Michael Vlach( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When nineteenth-century artists painted plantation scenes, they usually began with preparatory sketches made while standing in front of a planter's house or somewhere slightly below it. From either position, notes John Vlach, their gaze - and that of anyone who looked at the finished paintings - was necessarily directed upward. Instead of following the common compositional rule for landscape painting that called for a view from above, an outlook that fostered a feeling of mastery in the viewer, artists rendering plantation vistas employed a perspective that echoed the deference and respect the planter class assumed was its due."

"The body of this book offers a treasury of images - photographs, many by noted photographers - as well as plans and elevations, with captions that furnish relevant information about each building and region: subject, location, date, creator(s) of the image, and Library of Congress call number. The accompanying CD-ROM contains high-quality, downloadable versions of all the illustrations. It offers a direct link to the Library's online, searchable catalogs and image files, including the hundreds of thousands of high-resolution photographs, measured drawings, and data files in the Historic American Buildings Survey, Historic American Engineering Record, and other collections. A comprehensive and unique visual resource, Barns will be invaluable to students; teachers; researchers; historians of art, architecture, design, and technology; architects; engineers; designers of all kinds; and those who love barns."--Jacket
