Painting Childhood edited by Amy Orrock, with contributions from Emily Knight, Martin Postle and Jill Seaton
We are delighted to share this catalogue from one of our popular previous exhibitions. Painting Childhood looks at some of the most iconic paintings of children produced over the past 500 years. Featuring stunning portraits, amusing genre scenes and touching ‘fancy pictures’, it examines both the creative process and specific challenges posed by painting children - from capturing the fleeting moments of youth to encouraging young subjects to sit still. Accompanying the exhibitions Painting Childhood: From Holbein to Freud and Childhood Now, both shown at Compton Verney in 2019, this volume brings together a wealth of masterpieces from British collections, as well as new works by contemporary artists.
