"The Journey"
"The Journey", an illustration depicting a young boy absorbed in watching the scenery from his seat in a railway car. The painting was done for a series of poems by Josephine Preston Peabody entitled "The Little Past", which relate experiences of childhood from a child's perspective. Children's literature in general is often illustrated, sometimes lavishly, in a way rarely used for adult literature outside illustrated fiction. Generally, the artwork plays a greater role in books intended for the youngest readers (especially pre-literate children). Children's picture books can be a cognitively accessible source of high quality art for young children.Artist: Elizabeth Shippen Green; Restoration: Lise Broer
