Miniature Adults? Images of Childhood in Western Art - Lecture by Sophie Oosterwijk

Vorträge & Diskussionsrunden

Presented by The Arts Society Hamburg e.V.
When we look at early child portraits we often see only miniature adults dressed stiffly in adult-like clothes. Yet what can portraits by artists such as Rembrandt or Velázquez really tell us about children in the past? Recognising the (artistic) conventions behind such images may help to discover more about childhood throughout history, and about social expectations. So how did adults see children in the past, and how were they actually presented in art from Antiquity up to the present? Our findings could well be very different from what we might expect.
