Framing the Ocean, 1700 to the Present: Envisaging the Sea as Social Space
edited by Tricia Cusack
This collection shows how the marginal territory of the water’s edgehas been represented in art in different places at various times andhow such art contributed to the formation of cultural and nationalidentities. Essays explore visual cultures of the Jordan and VltavaRivers; the South African seaside resort of Durban; post-HurricaneKatrina New Orleans; and the French Riviera, among other margins ofriver and sea.
