Portraying Children in the European Tradition

In European art tradition, many artists depicted children with their elders, among peers, and, at times, by themselves. The representations reveal much about the society in which children were raised. Featuring works by Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Bartholomeo Schidone, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, Käthe Kollwitz, and many others through paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and photographs, the exhibition portrays children from the 16th century to the present.
