The works were created by art students aged 8-13, and were typical in their socialist content as well as form. They illustrate principles of both art education and civic training, and provide a unique view into Soviet education of the 1930's. The Ziegfeld Collection of International Children's Art comprises about 350 paintings, drawings, prints and collages made by adolescents aged 10 to 18 from 32 countries across the world. The Collection was originated in the 1950's by Dr. Edwin Ziegfeld (1905-1983), the creator of the arts and education program at Teachers College. Passow Israeli Children's Peace Art Collection is designed to provide students and scholars with high quality digital images of the distinctive works comprising The Israeli Children's Peace Art Collection, along with information on each art work and access to a comprehensive search function.
