CHILDREN'S ART IN WARTIME FROM THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR TO KOSOVO
"A drawing or a painting is a soul's message," Robert Coles observes. "The point is to demonstrate what has been imagined or, yes, witnessed … [and] for us to be shown something by certain boys and girls who become our teachers." They Still Draw Pictures collects and comments on a cross-section of children's art produced in wartime, with particular focus on the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).
