5784065Painting Childhood: From Holbein To Freud
DateSaturday 16th March 2019
DescriptionChildren have always fascinated artists, and in 2019 Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park will celebrate this by bringing together some of the most iconic paintings of children produced over the past 500 years. Featuring stunning portraits, amusing genre scenes and touching 'fancy pictures', the exhibition will feature 60 works from collections across the UK, and will explore the specific challenges posed by painting children: from capturing the fleeting moments of youth, to encouraging young subjects to sit still. Painting Childhood boasts a wealth of masterpieces by artists including Jan Steen, Judith Leyster, Bartolome Esteban Murillo, Johan Zoffany, Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds.
