Paul Kaplan (Purchase College, NY State University): 'The Other Warburg: Aby's African American Cousin Eugène and his Career as a Sculptor in 1850s Europe'<https://warburg.sas.ac.uk/events/event/22447>
The African American sculptor Eugène Warburg, born into slavery in New Orleans around 1826, was a distant relative of Aby Warburg. This talk carefully traces the sometimes astonishing twists and turns of the European phase of his career (1853-1859). Eugène Warburg's affiliation with both pro-slavery American diplomats in Paris as well as the leading transatlantic anti-slavery figures of Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Duchess of Sutherland are highlighted.
