  7. I have really enjoyed looking at the art on your site. I am writing down my favorite artists in my sketch book, so that I can refer to them again. You have many that I have never heard of, but whose works are exceptionally beautiful. Thank you for doing this. It is wonderful to have so much beautiful art in one place.

  9. “I AM A CHILD” is such an amazing collection – thank you! I’d love to exchange links with you. Being half Swedish (on my dad’s side), I’m so excited to see all your beautiful artwork by Karl Larsson. I’d like to suggest another Swedish artist that you might like: Jenny Nystrom.

    I was also happy to see you posted about Jessie Wilcox Smith, who I’ve blogged about (http://goodbooksforyoungsouls.blogspot.com/2010/11/jessie-wilcox-smith-magazines-and.html). I love her illustrations for A CHILD’S GARDEN OF VERSES, THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN, and WATER BABIES.

    Here are some additional illustrators of children’s books that I’ve come across who paint children beautifully: Thomas Nast (his Christmas illustrations), Tasha Tudor (quaint and sweet), Gennady Spirin (my favorite Russian illustrator!), PJ Lynch (CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF JONATHAN TOOMEY), and Trisha Romance (A STAR FOR CHRISTMAS http://www.romancecollection.com/niagara_originals.php). One more current artist (Italian) you might like to check out is Aris (http://blog-aris-blog.blogspot.com)

    • Wendy, thank you very much!…First of all: I linked your blog, which is made with great passion. I know, there are many deserving artists that are still missing and many artists to be discovered…Jenny Nystrom is on my “waiting list” and I’ll keep into account the ones you mentioned…I’m glad you mentioned Sweden. I visited Sweden and I can tell that it’s one of best memories I have. Beautiful places to see, beautiful people. In my heart there will always be a place for sweden.

    What a great idea to gather in one space so many artists associated with children!

  15. Hey Marco,

    I found your site by accident today. Seeing all the images reminded me of a picture in my nan’s house. It is by a famous English artist from the beginning of the 20th century. I’m surprised you don’t have her on the site, since she is famous for her illustrations of children. Her name is Mabel Lucie Attwell:

    • Richard, almost 1600 artists have been posted here but, I know, a lot of great painters are still missing. Mabel Lucie Attwell is one of them. I’ll try to remedy as soon as possible.

  19. Wonderful blog!!

    Do you think it would be a good idea to include some samples from Maurice Sendak’s work now that he has died? He is possibly the most award-winning creator of pictures of and for children.

    Here’s one of many:

    Here’s another:

    (My favourites are in that book, Outside Over There. They don’t have the monsters in them, though that’s not the reason I like them.)

    Thank you for sharing all these wonderful pictures.

  20. Hello!

    First I’d like to congratulate you on your fantastic blog!

    I’ve just started my own blog (its actually my second), http://onelittleexplorer.wordpress.com/, and I thought it would be nice to include a painting with each post. So I’ve been looking through my art books and Google images, which thankfully brought me here. I was just wondering what the permissions are on these images and if I could use them on my own blog, on which I’d would of course place a link leading back here 🙂

    Regards,

    Gerard.

    Mi piace

    • Gerard,
      thank you very much. About permissions: according to the European Union copyright term expires 70 years from the death of the author. After that a painting is in the public domain. Most of the paintings posted here entered the public domain and they are exclusively used to promote art and artists.
      Things change when you post living artists. Obviously all paintings copyrights belong to them. So when you post these images don’t forget to quote the artist’s name, crediting him for his work.
      Regards,
      Marco.

  22. Impressive achievement and I find covering photography with its short history intimidating. You need to check out two names: Steve Hanks, an American and Jan Saudek, who is Czech. Many people get the impression that Saudek only does photography, but he had used them as templates for his paintings as well and there are a smattering of children.

    Mi piace

    • Ron,
      I know them both. I’ll post Steve Hanks as soon as possible. Regarding Saudek, the decision is more complex. He’s certainly not a conventional artist. I’ve already received criticism for publishing artists like Balthus or Ovenden…There is the risk of being censored or blocked as, unfortunately, it is sufficient that only one follower flags the blog as “inappropriate”. Before publishing artists like Saudek, Stu Mead, Otto Lohmuller, Mike Cockrill…I have to think twice.

      Mi piace

  23. Yes, I agree, Steve Hanks should definitely be added to this website. His watercolors of children are fantastic. Also, what about Robert Vickery since his piece is featured as the logo of this wonderful website.

  25. I visit your site often! I’d like to call your attention to another great children’s book illustrator and artist, Matt Tavares. I especially love his nostalgic baseball stories and pictures. If you are interested, his website is http://www.matttavares.com/index.html

    Mi piace

  26. What a wonderful idea for a site! I recognize the painting on your letterhead, but I have forgotten the name of the artist. I know he paints in egg tempera. He was a favorite of mine years ago, and I had a print of a child with a bicycle on a background of pavingstones, which filled the entire picture. I think his first name was Robert. Can you remind me of his name?

    • Barbara,
      I don’t have the copyright on the paintings that I post. Most of them are in public domain, others are not. Just know that copyright term expires 70 years from artist’s death. Otherwise all paintings copyrights belong to the artist and you should ask for permission. In any case, always remember to quote the artist’s name.

      Mi piace

      • Hey, thnx for your reply. I know it expires after 70 years, but the maker of the photograph has copyrights too. So perhaps you are able to tell me who owns the photograph of the painting of David Artz ‘Mother with Children and Lamb’, then I can ask the owner, since I am afraid the journal will not accept it otherwise.

    • Sorry but no photographer’s name is quoted.

  29. Dear Ghost,

    Wonderful work as always!

    When you write, for example, 1920 as a single date, does it mean the birth year of the artist, or the time at which most of the paintings were painted, or something else?

    Thank you very much for all your conscientious work.

  30. Just wondering why you haven’t included the beautiful drawings of Kate Greenaway in your list. There are so many delightful pictures of children by that great Victorian artist.

    You can also check out Randolph Caldecott. His illustrations for Four and Twenty Blackbirds, Babes in the Wood, etc is worth viewing.

  36. I personally own about 25 children’s portraits painted by a now deceased artist named Raymond Ronyak. He was a WPA artist that painted into his 90’s. At the end of WWII he worked with the Red Cross and the displaced persons program. He met many artists and studied portraiture with them. He painted landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. If you send me your email address, I could sent you photos of some of them if you like.
    Thanks!
