Details
Child imagery has played an important role in China's traditional art of painting. The earliest depictions of children were found during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). However,it's after more than a millennium that genre paintings featuring children had their heyday in the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
A significant number of children's portraits had been created in history. Overall, child subjects fall into three categories: playing children, shepherd boys, and peddlers.
Zhang Xuan and Zhou Fang were two portrait painters of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) good at depicting children at play. Popular children's games in ancient times include playing house,fighting on "horseback", cricket-fighting, and so on. Su Hanchen of the Song Dynasty began to establish romantic associations linking childhood with naivety in his artworks, which were drawn with meticulous observations.
