The relationship between art, motherhood and child care has always been a fertile source of discussion and debate. This book, like its predecessors Medicine and Art and Surgical and Medical Treatment in Art, evolved from a series of articles written by Alan EH Emery on art and medicine in Clinical Medicine, the Journal of the Royal College of Physicians. In this volume, however, the authors have concentrated their attention on the biological, social and emotional elements of the unique relationship between mother and child.
Each artwork, beautifully reproduced in full colour, is accompanied by an essay, tracing the history of mother and child care from Ancient Egypt to the present day. Featured artists include Rembrandt van Rijn, William Hogarth, Norman Rockwell and Alison Lapper, as well as numerous lesser known artists spanning the ages and the globe. The essays describe the relevance of each work of art and also detail the artists themselves, making this book a unique treasure trove of information for all who share in the authors' love of art, history, motherhood and child care.

A truly beautiful book featuring a wonderful collection of images. Finished at a very high quality this book is well worth every penny.
