This painting by Francesco Durantino is on the lid of a bowl that formed part of a mid-16th-century childbirth set. It is one of the many illustrations in a handsome volume from V&A Publications. Among topics covered are the real and ideal in Dutch art, the cottage genre in 18th-century Britain, the child and home a century later, interiors in films and fiction, and retail “lifestyle” catalogues.
