VISUALIZING HAITI IN U.S. CULTURE, 1910-1950. Lindsay J. Twa. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 322 pp. with 70 ills. (16 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2013-47651 ISBN 9781409446729 In English.
Publisher's description: From the 1910s until the 1950s the Caribbean nation of Haiti drew the attention of many U.S. literary and artistic luminaries, yet while significant studies have been published on Haiti's history, none analyze visual representations with any depth. This book argues that choosing Haiti as subject matter was a highly charged decision by American artists to use their artwork to engage racial, social, and political issues. Twa scrutinizes photographs, illustrations, paintings, and theatre as well as textual and archival sources.
