Depictions of children have had a prominent place in Chinese art since the Song period (960-1279). Yet one would be hard pressed to find any significant discussion of children in art in the historical documents of imperial China or contemporary scholarship on Chinese art. Children in Chinese Art brings to the forefront themes and motifs that have crossed social boundaries for centuries but have been overlooked in scholarly treatises. In this volume, experts in the fields of Chinese art, religion, literature, and history introduce and elucidate many of the issues surrounding child imagery in China, including the pervasive use of pictures of children for didactic reinforcement of social values as well as the amuletic function of these works.
