Physical Details

The identifying labels accompanying each piece measure approximately 1 x 4 in. Labels containing the prefix "B" indicate the size of the original image is 9 x 14 in. or larger. Labels without the prefix indicate the original image is 9 x 14 in. or smaller.


This set of 172 color reproductions represents all the color images made of (Alva’s) work for the Reference Edition. The selection results from the work of a participant in the Prospect Archive Scholars/Fellows project of 1983-85 or of comparable study in later institutes. The participants—generally educators—each went through each item in the child’s collection, organized and numbered it chronologically, and together with others similarly engaged, used Prospect’s Descriptive Processes to make additional collaborative inquiries into the work and the common and divergent threads between the children. The selection of color images for the Reference Edition was made on the basis of this study, to represent characteristic and exceptional themes, motifs, stylistic tendencies, and choices of media, through the duration of the collection.
