An article from yesterday's Times, by Michael Glover, discussing an exhibition of art for children, 'A Child's Play, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, till July 18:

Surprisingly, this is the first major survey in Europe of art made for children. Look for scholarship on this subject and you won%u2019t find any. Its chronology runs from the early 1900s to the end of the 20th century, and it begins in Vienna, where educational reforms and attitudes towards children in places of learning were becoming of crucial importance. In the first section are toys - fantastical animals, soldiers, a doll's house - with an educational bias and a fine sense of aesthetic values.
