Light, P. H.; Humphreys, J. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 1981
Ninety-seven children between 5 and 8 years of age drew two arrays, four times each, in different orientations vis-a-vis the child. Younger children's drawings contained much array-specific information but often no indication at all of the child's viewing position. Older children's drawings were predominantly view-specific, often containing little…

Light, P. H.; MacIntosh, E. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 1980
Young children drew two opaque objects placed one behind the other. Over two-thirds of the children drew the objects separately in horizontal or vertical relationships. When drawing an object in a glass beaker, half of the children depicted the object vertically or horizontally separate from the beaker. (Author/DB)
