The Corrupting Power of Images and 19th Century Art

Student Anna Sims
Faculty Mentor(s)
Department Art History
Course ARTH 351: 19th-Century Art History (Honors section)


This project applies a theory of the psychological impact of images to examples from the 19th century: to both the “banned” images (such as Daumier’s political cartoons) and to images that perpetuated stereotypes and racist “myths.”
