ARHS 3387 - Picturing Children and the Family in Art: 1850 to the Present


Credits: 3

Considers changing representations of children and the family in art from 1850 to the present. Artworks will be studied in relation to theoretical and literary texts, from Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to Melanie Klein’s research on the emotional development of children. Key topics will include the perceived relationship between childhood and artistic creativity, the representation of gender and sexuality, family members as artistic collaborators, and the changing structure of the family in the twenty-first century.
