Pictures of Innocence : the History and Crisis of Ideal Childhood (98 Edition)by Anne Higonnet
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
At an intersection between the history of ideas, art, popular culture, censorship, and law, PICTURES OF INNOCENCE shows how we are in the midst of a radical redefinition of childhood, a turbulent change in fundamental cultural values inaugurated by images of ideal childhood portrayed over the past three centuries. 116 illustrations, 12 in color.
Explores images of childhood innocence that are at once the most common, the most sacred, and the most controversial of our time. They range from 18th-century portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds to greeting cards by Anne Geddes, and from the photographs of Lewis Carroll to those of Sally Mann.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 227-242) and index.
