Landscape of slavery : the plantation in American art ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Approaching their topic through the lenses of art history and social history, the authors explore a largely unexamined and provocative genre of American art: plantation paintings. The 83 color plates, 19 black-and-white illustrations, and six essays present both the images and a background for understanding them in the context of slavery and race relations in the United States

If the "War Between the States" was the test of the young republic's commitment to its founding precepts, it was also a watershed in photographic history, as the camera recorded the epic, heartbreaking narrative from beginning to end-- providing those on the home front, for the first time, with immediate visual access to the horrors of the battlefield
Love and loss : American portrait and mourning miniatures by Robin Jaffee Frank( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Most often, portrait miniatures were painted in watercolor on thin disks of ivory. They were sometimes worn as jewelry, sometimes framed to be viewed privately. Many were painted by specialists, although renowned easel artists - including Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, and Charles Willson Peale - also created them to commemorate births, engagements, marriages, deaths, and other joinings or separations. The book traces the development of this exquisite art form, revealing the close ties between the history of the miniature and the history of American private life."--Jacket
