The Age of Innocence

Stolen gingerbread, spirited laughter, serenely slumbering infants and poised young girls provide some colourful contrasts in this exploration of the evolving imagery of children and childhood. 

Curated to complement Flinck in Focus, this display includes stylistically diverse prints and drawings selected from the Barber’s collection – from tranquil religious prints of the 17th century to playful illustrations of childhood in the 18th and 19th centuries. Drawn from all over Europe, the display includes works by notable artists such as Castiglione, Adriaen van Ostade, William Hogarth and John Brett.
