This book is as fascinating as it it gorgeous. Did you know that many major, modernist painters were not only interested in children's art, but used it as a model and inspiration for their own paintings? Picasso, Kandinsky, Chagall and Miro were all avid collectors, observers, and protectors of children's art. I love showing the paintings in it to children and trying to guess which works are by 'famous artists' and which are by youngsters; It's tougher than you might think.
