Abstract
Histories of childhood have insisted upon a dramatic shift in the way in which children are represented in art from roughly 1700 to 1900. My project seeks to better understand this shift by analyzing paintings produced in the 18th century and their re-imagined versions as mezzotints from the early 20th century.
