Was flicking through a book about Down Syndrome and spotted these:

Virgin and Child by Andrea Mantegna (c.1430 - 1506)

Lady Cockburn and her children by Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792)

then did a search on the internet for them and came up with this one:

what do you think?

I actually dont have many books on DS read a lot on the net, we get some good books from Yorella, but a lot seem to be over 15 years old. Does anyone know of some good new books?

Thanks Maria, I suppose I should've said which book it was Razz I have heard of others too but can't remember where they are. If anyone finds anything, post it here! I did hear a while back that kids with Down Syndrome were often featured in paintings. Because way back when, people with Down Syndrome were looked upon as 'children of God' and revered as being divine in nature.

Do they actually know these were depictions of children with DS, or are they going by how they look and assuming this is the case?

Oh, would that it were still the case....

hmmm, it is interesting.

Would be nice to find out if they were actually paintings of children with DS or is it just co-incidence that they 'look' it....?

They are beautiful pieces, esp the one with the three children. love that one
