Elegant and enigmatic, the silhouette is the simplest of art forms--but that simplicity belies a rich and varied past. In this first major work on the art of the silhouette, art historian Emma Rutherford draws from dozens of American and European sources to create a fascinating history of the art form--and to illuminate the compelling social history hidden behind its shadows.
