Abstract:

"Ape to Apollo is the first book to follow the development in the eighteenth-century of the idea of race as it shaped and was shaped by the idea of aesthetics. Twelve full-color illustrations and sixty-five black-and-white illustrations from publications and artists of the day allow the reader to see eighteenth-century concepts of race translated into images. Human "varieties" are marked in such illustration by exaggerated differences, with emphases on variations from the European ideal and on the characteristics that allegedly divided the races."--Jacket.
