Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Images of Familial Intimacy in Eastern and Western Art contains the table of contents, preface, a list of contributors and a list of figures. The book presents an analysis of artworks that depict children, families, or husband and wife, the value systems of the periods and regions in which the works were created. It considers in more detail the preconception and tendency to view art works depicting children and the family as too easily familiar and easily understood. The book also discusses Kusumi Morikage's work, Family Enjoying the Evening Cool, the Japanese pre-modern masterpiece still beloved by many today, depicting an ordinary family.

Keywords: Family Enjoying the Evening Cool; Japan; Kusumi Morikage
