Children s Culture and the Avant garde

This volume explores the mutual influences between children’s literature and the avant-garde. Olson places particular focus on fin-de-siècle Paris, where the Avant-garde was not unified in thought and there was room for modernism to overlap with children’s literature and culture in the Golden Age. The ideas explored by artists such as Florence Upton, Henri Rousseau, Sir William Nicholson, Paula Modersohn-Becker, and Marc Chagall had been disseminated widely in cultural productions for children; their work, in turn, influenced children’s culture. These artists turned to children’s culture as a "new way of seeing," allied to a contemporary interest in international artistic styles. Children’s culture also has strong ties to decadence and to the grotesque, the latter of which became a distinctively Modernist vision. This book visits the qualities of the era that were defined as uniquely childlike, the relation of childhood to high and low art, and the relation of children’s literature to fin-de-siècle artistic trends. Topics of interest include the use of non-European figures (the Golliwogg), approaches to religion and pedagogy, to oppression and motherhood, to Nature in a post-Darwinian world, and to vision in art and life. Olson’s unique focus covers new ground by concentrating not simply on children's literature, but on how childhood experiences and culture figure in art.

The Village Children  an Introduction to the Art of Painting Children and Their Stories

The book is both a children's story book and a craft book and is in two parts. The story book section contains short and longer stories for young children to read printed in both English and French. The craft section is an introduction to painting for the aspiring young artists. Part One - includes full colour illustrations of plates originally painted by hand on porcelain/china and canvas by Marie Dubois. On the opposite page the author has written stories both in English and French based on the theme of each plate. The stories have been translated to French to familiarise young children to a foreign language, especially now learning a second language has been added to the school curriculum. Part Two - is an introduction to the art of painting. The book gives brief instructions as to the materials required, basic techniques and painting principles that beginners will need to create some fine artistic tableau, as well as definitions of various brush strokes for beginners to practice, so that they can achieve their own fine art work. The Book also includes line work for each plate design, which can be traced on to any painting material. It is hoped that the artwork contained in this volume will inspire other painters to produce similar pieces of work. The designs require a great deal of careful creative attention. All drawings and colours on the designs have a distinctive style particularly the characteristic figures, old fashion costumes and hats. The book is not only for children to read or parents to read to their children, but is also for painters, art teachers and others who might be interested in creating this fine art and will have reason to feel proud of their own achievements.
