Description: Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2018. 25cm., hardcover, 264pp., 68 color illus.

Summary: Colouring the Caribbean offers the first comprehensive study of Agostino Brunias's intriguing pictures of colonial West Indians of colour DS so called ' Caribs, dark-skinned Africans and Afro-Creoles, and people of mixed race DS made for colonial officials and plantocratic elites during the late-eighteenth century. Although Brunias's paintings have often been understood as straightforward documents of visual ethnography that functioned as field guides for reading race, this book investigates how the images both reflected and refracted ideas about race commonly held by eighteenth-century Britons, helping to construct racial categories while simultaneously exposing their constructedness and underscoring their contradictions. The book offers provocative new insights about Brunias>'s work gleaned from a broad survey of his paintings, many of which are reproduced here for the first time. (Rethinking Art's Histories)
