Kara Walker: Harper's Pictorial History (Annotated)
Kara Walker: Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated) considers experiences of racism toward African Americans that were absent or only alluded to in historical representations of the Civil War. Created in collaboration with the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies, New York, each print in the portfolio is an enlargement of a woodcut plate from Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (Chicago, 1866), overlaid with Walker’s silkscreen cutout figures rendered in solid black silhouette.
