Artist's Description

Little Liam lost in his own world.

Liam is a short form of the Irish name Uilliam (William) originating from the Germanic name Willahelm. As a hebrew name Liam means “My people; I have a nation”.
Recognition of childhood as a state different from adulthood began to emerge in the 16th and 17th centuries. Society began to relate to the child not as a miniature adult but as a person of a lower level of maturity needing adult protection, love and nurturing. This change can be traced in painting: In the Middle Ages, children were portrayed in art as miniature adults with no childish characteristics. In the 16th century, images of children began to acquire a distinct childish appearance. From the late 17th century onwards, children were shown playing. Toys and literature for children also began to develop at this time.
