THE DEVELOPMENT OF ARTISTIC ABILITY by Eileen Berrang MBChB and Chris Molteno PhD MD FCP(SA) DCH This book differs from others on this subject by recording and analysing artistic ability from infancy to adult professional level, with copies of original drawings illustrating the sequence of successful development over a 24 year period." Most children love to draw. The fruits of their efforts are not only a source of pleasure to themselves, but also of pride to their parents. But children's drawings also provide a window through which the developing cognitive and social skills can be observed. Drawings are therefore a useful area of developmental study. Children's drawings have been discussed in the context of developmental abilities. They may also be considered for their communicative content and can bring to light underlying emotional issues. Moreover, children draw as a modality of play. Artistic efforts are then engaged in for the pleasure of their production." In the latter part of the book the evolution of change in interest, humour and mature ability becomes apparent.
