The Image of Childhood: Representations of the Child in Painting and Literature, 1700-1900.
Benton, Michael
Children's Literature in Education, v27 n1 p35-60 Mar 1996
Examines issues about the representation of children in art during the 18th and 19th centuries: (1) main representations during this period; (2) principal influences affecting the construction of these images; and (3) whether the verbal and visual arts conceptualize childhood in similar or different ways. Looks at three influences on writers and painters: ideology, artistic convention, and money. (TB)
