By Stephen A. Hopwood on March 25, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This truly fantastic exhibition at the Yale Center for British Art is comitted to paper in a really great presentation of historical art of Jamaica! Works of Belisario are depicted in a portfolio facsimile of his original publications of Jonkunno dancers, street vendors and 19th century Jamaican characters. Then there is more - a veritable art gallery of Hakewill, Kidd, Duperly, Robertson and other artists who came to Jamaica and left the fantastic views of life in Jamaica. Duperly was a early photographer who left his Daguerreotypes of Jamaica - each one a work of art - the family Duperly (just about all of the sons and grandsons were photographers) left a real tapestry of photographs of Jamaican life and times in the 19th and early 20th century Jamaica.
Those who prepared and presented this magnificent book should be commended for an outstanding job which should be in every "Jamaicaphile's" library. (Another great thing being is the price - shall I say it is a treasure worth every penny you pay for it!) A great reference and one that you will enjoy over and over again!
