Family

About

Artworks that depict family scenes, ranging from joyous depictions of the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten and his family, to the solemn Portrait of Arnolfini and his Wife by Jan Van Eyck. Generations of Christian artists depicted the holy family with the utmost admiration, and Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun painted Marie Antoinette’s family with a great deal of affection. Court painters like Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Goya, who depicted their subjects in more traditional configurations, used subtle tactics to demonstrate that even the most esteemed families might not be all that different from our own.
