Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

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.

Synopsis:

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.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 227-242) and index.
