Flowers of youth: images of children from the National Gallery of Art
"Children represent innocence and hope, and great artists throughout history have given us works that capture childhood's special magic. This charming book celebrates childhood by featuring more than forty pictures of children from the renowned collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Included are portraits of children with parents, siblings, playmates, pets, and toys by such distinguished European and American artists as Mary Cassatt, John Singleton Copley, Sir Anthony van Dyck, Paul Gauguin, Winslow Homer, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Auguste Renoir. The pictures are accompanied by some of the most memorable poems written for or about children, including favorites by Emily Dickinson, Eugene Field, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Robert Louis Stevenson. This compilation of paintings and poems provides an appealing and refreshing look at the pleasures of childhood through the ages and will be treasured by children and adults alike."--BOOK JACKET.
