More Portraits From the "Changing Face of Childhood" Exhibition

In the February 2008 issue of American Artist, we examined how English and European portraits of children  changed with the coming of the Age of Enlightenment. In this online exclusive gallery, we offer more examples from the exhibition "The Changing Face of Childhood," on view last fall at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London.
