This chapter examines twenty paintings, mostly of children, sometimes of family groups or a single parent and child, executed between the 1520s and 1901 by Europeans or Americans. It attempts to link them into a series so that some meaningful observations can be made concerning the ways in which the language of representation changed, and thereby the purpose intended for the image by contemporaries can be evaluated. Although the analysis focuses on the images selected for display in this hypothetical gallery, other paintings, monuments, and pictures are also considered.
