The Blindness of Justice – Iconographic Dialog between Art and Law (New Book)
I have the pleasure to inform you that "A Cegueira da Justiça – Diálogo Iconográfico entre Arte e Direito" ("The Blindness of Justice - Iconographic Dialog between Art and Law") has just been released by Professor Dr. Marcilio Toscano Franca Filho, Professor at Universidade Federal da Paraiba (Brasil) (see http://pt-br.facebook.com/people/Marcilio-Franca/1754186653) and member of this community.
According to the author, this book is the first publication in Portuguese dealing with topics such as legal visualization, iconic turn, legal iconography, and legal iconology. It studies the blindness of Justice. Analyzing 27 images of paintings, sculptures, and engravings of the Goddess of Justice, the book explores the dialogue between law and art. The purpose of this publication is to contribute to covering the history of the artistic representation of Justice over the centuries. Some of the images represented in "The Blindness of Justice" are included for the first time in a research work on visual law. The bibliography ranges from North American, South American to European literature.
