Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux’s depiction of an enslaved Caribbean woman was created in 1867, a decade after the abolition of slavery in France, joining the rapidly proliferating images of Black womanhood in Europe and the United States. But what stories were these images, often of unnamed living models, meant to convey? Join CMA Associate Curator of American Art Key Jo Lee as she describes how Why Born Enslaved! and other colonial and postcolonial images of Black women were at the nexus of Western fantasies of dominion and freedom in the 19th century.
