An ambitious and revelatory investigation of the black female figure in modern art, tracing the legacy of Manet through to contemporary art.

Featuring over 175 illustrations and profiles of several models, Posing Modernity illuminates long-obscured figures and proposes that a history of modernism cannot be complete until it examines the vital role of the black female muse within it.
