Lecture on “Blood in the Sugar Bowl”

Mellon Curatorial Research Assistant and Art History PhD candidate Rachel Newman discusses her exhibition, which explores sugar manufacturing and consumption at the peak of the sugar trade in the late 18th- and early 19th- centuries.  Newman considers works of art depicting everything from sugar’s roots in brutal slave plantations to its final destination, the tables of tea drinkers in Britain.  Supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
