Images of children and families abound in the works of the French Impressionists, from Claude Moneta??s portraits of his young sons to Mary Cassatta??s endearing images of mother and child. In Impressionist Children, Greg M. Thomas offers new perspectives on some of the most famous paintings in art history, explaining how they reflect the dominant social, cultural, and political aspects of Parisian middle-class life in the late 1800s.

Drawing onA letters, childrena??s books, tourist guidebooks, and 19th-century texts on child development, parenting, and education, Thomas skillfully demonstrates how childhood became a crucial theme for its embodiment of adult ideas about childhood, the family, sexuality, work and leisure, national culture, and, above all, the formation and reproduction of bourgeois identity. He discusses paintings, prints, drawings, and sculptures by Impressionist artists and investigates the influence of popular visual culture?fashion, toys, studio photography, and illustrations in books, magazines, and park guides?on the Impressionistsa?? conceptualizationA of childhood and family relations.
