Childhood is a phase for learning, making lifetime friendships and having fun. Here are some masterpieces which amplify the magical power of this stage of life.

Sympathy, by Briton Riviere
A girl and her loyal dog. The animal seems to be extremely curious, trying to know what’s going on inside the little girl’s mind. Their friendship seems to be undestructible.
A Little Nimrod, by James Jacques Joseph Tissot
The king wins! And the defeated warriors smile to the painter.
But Wait ’til Next Week, by Norman Rockwell
Rockwell’s ability to transmit emotions and thinking through his characters’ faces is proven here.

The gorgeous collie (look at its pelage!!) is the same size as the girl. Their bond is representated by the tender eye contact.
Top Hat and Tails, by Norman Rockwell
Part of being a child is that you grow really fast. This little boy is looking forward to be a future gentleman.The dog seems intrigued, though.
