About this item

Ventura traces the conceptual and ideological sources promoting breast-feeding in modern Western society, a period in which the very concept of womanhood changed as women were simultaneously idealized and differentiated from men, while subordinating themselves to men's interests. She focuses on artistic representations of infant breast-feeding in France during the early modern period, from the French Revolution to the beginning of the 20th century, covering mothers, wet nurses, and feeding bottles; death and substitute mothers; and maternal breast-feeding.
