“the pictures of sondry things collected and counterfeited according to the truth…”

  • Title page description of John White’s watercolor images of Native Americans, 1585

    “To ‘counterfeit’ was to engage in a reportorial mode of visual depiction that recorded things and events as they were witnessed by the eye, not as they were composed by the artist.”

    “It was not a particular style or subject matter that defined the counterfeit; rather it was defined by its…status as uninterpreted nature.”

    (excerpt from A New Literary History of America (Harvard University Press Reference Library))
