Family and Friends: Regional Survey of British Portraiture

 
9780117015067: Family and Friends: Regional Survey of British Portraiture

Published to coincide with the Norfolk Portraits exhibition at the Castle Museum, Norwich in September 1992, "Family and Friends" is a history of portraiture in Norfolk. Thoroughly researched and beautifully illustrated, the book provides a political and social historical overview of a particular region as well as an art historical one. Recurring themes include: the importance of court connections and fluctuating family fortunes; the Protestant and Whig strands within the country's history; the ties of family and friendship; the rise of the civic portrait in recognition of public position and a dearth of portraits of the lower orders in society, unless commissioned by a grateful squire.
