Cizek’s work was promoted in England by Francesca Wilson and the later writings of Wilhelm Viola, whose advocacy assured Cizek’s position as an innovator in his teaching methods and as an agent for change in the recognition of the value of child art.
‘People make a great mistake in thinking of child art merely as a step to adult art. It is a thing in itself, quite shut off and isolated, following its own laws and not the laws of grown up people. Once it’s blossoming time is over it will never come again’. Franz Cizek 1921
