Black Models and White Myths examines the tendentious racial assumptions behind representations of Africans that emphasized the contrast between "civilization" and "savagery" and the development of so-called scientific and ethnographic racism. These works often depicted Africans within a context of sexuality and exoticism, representing their allegedly natural behavior as a counterpoint to inhibited European conduct. ------------------------ No Flaws or Blemishes but the book plate of art collector Robert Allen Lewis. Throughout his life he was an active collector of art focused on contemporary and outsider works. Still Gift Quality.
