This exhibition focuses on sugar plantation slavery during the peak of the sugar trade, the late 18th–mid-19th century. On display are sugar bowls from the Cantor’s collection, Henry Corbould’s illustration Fashionable Women Pouring Tea, and loans from Stanford University Libraries Special Collections, including James Gillray’s caricature The Anti-Saccharites, and William Blake’s depictions of slave torture in his 1777 Narrative, of a five years’ expedition, against the revolted Negroes of Surinam. The exhibition also includes loans from other private and public collections.
