Children in Art

It is a commonly held perception in society that today's children are the future leaders of tomorrow. As such, children have come to symbolize hope. This is certainly the case in art. As the treasured gifts of their parents, children signify an infantile naivety as well as a purity in their vulnerability when depicted in art. In their childlike state, they appear untainted by the adult world they will emerge into as they proceed into maturity. 

Artists have always featured children in their artwork. Historically, in art, their inclusion has occurred in royal court family portraiture of master artists for example. As young symbols of virtue, children and babies are some of the most recurrent subjects in art. Like nature, children are a universally adored subject in art and as such artworks that feature them usually perform well commercially. Artists such as BeritHanna Chroboczek and Alice Neel have opted to focus on these young subjects in their careers. Discover with Artsper, the vitality, innocence and naivety that is found in artworks of children.
