Review:

Concepts of Identity attempts to expose the fault lines that lie beneath the current debate over definitions of "family" and "family values" by laying out the visual history of family portraits. Katherine Hoffman shows the power that representative images have to define the operative concepts of family, as well as the visual record they create of how families choose to see themselves. Reaching back to ancient Egypt and the Renaissance, though decisively tied to the 20th century, Hoffman directs a critical gaze on familiar pictures, exposing the potential family portraits have to shape our conceptions of family life.

About the Author:

Katherine Hoffman teaches modern and contemporary art and art history at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she is chairperson of the Department of Fine Arts. She is the author of Explorations: The Visual Arts Since 1945, Collage: Critical Views, and An Enduring Spirit: The Art of Georgia O’Keeffe.
