"In The Planter's Prospect, Vlach explores these and other statements of power encoded in plantation landscapes. He focuses on six artists whose collective body of work spanned the period between 1800 and 1935 and documented plantations across the South, from Maryland to Louisiana. Framing thoughtful, in-depth analyses of plantation imagery in the work of Francis Guy, Charles Fraser, Adrien Persac, Fanny Palmer, William Aiken Walker, and Alice Ravenel Huger Smith are chapters that examine the formal features of plantation paintings and the social attitudes that influenced the way southern audiences looked at those paintings."--Jacket
