Part of Tate Britain's BP British Art Displays, Family Matters: The Family of British Art looks at how family life has been portrayed in British art over 400 years. It includes public displays of genealogy, depictions of private relationships, idealised visions of domesticity and images of the fragmented reality that can sometimes be family life. Displaying work from artists such as Bill Brandt, David Hockney and Michael Andrews, it's represents families as a vision of strength, a fragile unit and a depiction of questionable values.
