This book presents an innovative approach to the psychological study of children’s pictures, drawings, and art. With contributions from leading experts in the field, it compiles all the relevant theory and research on children’s developing conceptions of pictures, drawings, and art. It is the first book to focus explicitly on children’s knowledge and judgment of pictorial representations, including the understanding of their role as artist and viewer.
"The book is of value for researchers of children's cognitive development and comprehending relationships between picture, artist and viewer."
