Printed works for or about children will be the focus of the exhibition ‘Printing a Child’s World’. More than two dozen works from the late 19th and early 20th centuries—by artists such as Randolph Caldecott (for whom the annual award for best children’s illustration is named), George Bellows, Winslow Homer, Thomas Nast, and others—will be shown. Because of their sensitivity to light, these works—primarily children’s books, illustrations, and prints—are rarely displayed. In addition to works from The Met collection, there will be a dozen loans from a private collection and the New-York Historical Society. Read more.
