Because her works parodied American societal and political figures, Marisol was associated with Pop. However, her sophisticated carving and painting reveal that her works are far less superficial and satirical than other Pop artists'.
The Family is part of a series of works Marisol did on the family theme (which included Baby Boy and Baby Girl), in part to explode the myth put forward in American advertising about the dream American family.
