Klicktipp: Historical depictions of women breastfeeding babies (Weblog)

„Nowadays, reports of photos of women breastfeeding their babies getting removed from social media with complaints of indecency are commonplace. And there’s not a great deal of coverage (pun intended) in our art heritage either. From nearly 57 million items in Europeana Collections, a search for ‘breastfeeding’ (and variants in other languages) returns just a few hundred results. But there are some really lovely ones. Take a look.“
