Grandparents and their families in photojournalism and art.

Long live Gan-Gan!

Photographer Annie Leibovitz recently shot this portrait of Queen Elizabeth, who just turned 90, with her five great-grandchildren and two youngest grandchildren.

Archibald Motley, one of the most celebrated artists of the Harlem Renaissance, created two famous portraits of his grandmother, Emily, who was born into slavery in Kentucky.

Storytime in Paris

Mary Cassatt painted this portrait of her mother, nephew, and nieces on a family vacation near Paris in the summer of 1880.
