This superb picture book is devoted to the development of the children's portrait in England during the eighteenth century and its dissemination throughout Europe. Portraits of children spending time in an open landscape without adults present reflected an entirely new perception of childhood that had its roots in the writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and John Locke. For the first time children were seen as autonomous individuals upon whom families focused their pride and attention. Artists represented in this engaging new study include Anthony van Dyck, Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough, Henry Raeburn, Friedrich von Amerling and Franz Xaver Winterhalter. It is lavishly illustrated with a charming selection of children's portraits. It will appeal to anyone interested in art history and the development of portraiture.
