  • About

    By Therese Woodcock on Margaret Lowenfeld’s Work

    Summary of Main Findings

    Three collections of Lowenfeld Mosaics: the earliest collection was in 1954, in Malaya (now part of Malaysia), and consists of a sample of 109 mosaics from males ages between 10-26; the second sample was collected in the first half of 1986 in London, England and consists of 31 mosaics (15 boys and 16 girls) aged between 8-12; the third sample collected at the end of 1986 in the Guangdong Province of China and consists of 200 mosaics (100 boys and 100 girls) all born in 1974.

    All these collections share the two major characteristics identical in my previous analyses (Woodcock 1986a, 1986b). All three groups produced well over 80% representational designs an all their mosaics showed the kind of structure that is associated with European designs.
