If Slavery Never Existed: Art

I created a post talking about the pieces of literature that wouldn’t exist if slavery never existed. In this post I will list ten works of art that wouldn’t exist if slavery never existed.

10 Works of Art that Portray Slavery:

  1. “A Slave Sale in Charleston, South Carolina” by Eyre Crowe (1854)
  2. “The Emancipation of Negroes” by Thomas Nast (1863)
  3. “After the Sale: Slaves going South” by Eyre Crowe (1853)
  4. “Southern Plantation Slaves Being Freed” by Thomas Nast (1863)
  5. “Slave Auction at Richmond, Virginia”  by Eyre Crowe (1856)
  6. “Runaway Slaves” by Thomas Nast (1861)
  7. “Slaves Waiting for Sale – Richmon, Virginia” by Thomas Nast (1863)
  8. “The Slave Auction” by Eyre Crow (1862)
  9. “The Slave Ship” by J. M. Turner (1840)
  10. “Slave Market Memorial” (could not find sculptor or year it was completed)

These are just a few pieces of are that portray slavery. The sites I used to find information on these works of art are the following:
