Mother and child care in art.

Emery, Alan E.H. and Marcia L.H. Henry.

Royal Society of Medicine Pr.


140 pages




Based on a series of articles by Alan E.H. Emery in Clinical Medicine, the Journal of the Royal College of Physicians, this book considers 67 works of art relating to mothers and childcare. Emery (human genetics, U. of Edinburgh) and Monica Emery, a medical librarian, focus on works that are generally not devotional, and they mostly exclude those that depict disesases. Included are works from ancient Egypt to the present day, each work shown full-page in color and accompanied by a brief essay on its history and medical connections. Among the artists included: Rembrandt, Munch, Chagall, Goya, Norman Rockwell, Susan Macfarlane, and Alison Lapper. Other works are listed at the end of the book. US distribution is by BookMasters.
