'Africans in English Caricature 1769–1819' wins the 2019 Book Award of the Historians of British Art

The Book Prize Committee of The Historians of British Art is pleased to announce that "Africans in English Caricature 1769–1819: Black Jokes, White Humour" by Temi Odumosu has won the 2019 award for a single-authored book with a subject between 1600-1800.

The book cleverly explores how and why satirical artists both mocked and utilized Africans as subversive comic weaponry between 1769 and 1819, a period of unprecedented growth in the proliferation of texts and images in the popular sphere, engaging learned citizens in discussion and commentary on the most pressing social and political issues of the day.

Van Dyck's Hosts in Genoa: Lucas and Cornelis de Wael's Lives, Business Activities and Works
A. Stoesser

Reviewed in The Burlington

"(...) scholars will benefit from Stoesser’s exacting analysis of precisely how artists navigated the commercial and creative aspects of marketing their works to clients – especially in Genoa – during the first half of the seicento. Few other authors go to the effort of explaining the foundations of artistic practice on a commercial level, to outline the main tenets of the theoretical discourse that subsumed the creation of many of these works, or of reviewing arcane source material (the reader learns, for example, that it took over one hundred different motions to load a musket, information cited to substantiate the accuracy of details in Cornelis’s military works)."

Timothy Standring, in: The Burlington Magazine, February 2019
