The historical survey in Goodenough's Measurement of Intelligence by Drawings reviews this area since 1885 and indicates a continued interest of investigators in many parts of the world in the drawings of children. A recurrent theme suggested in most of the published observations was that some characteristics of the drawings were subject to a developmental process and showed significant maturational changes. More recently, this general feeling has grown to include personality factors as a major aspect of drawing behavior to the point where current emphasis has now shifted from the formal aspects of scoring, necessary in the evaluation of intelligence, to the more dynamic aspects of drawing behavior such as subjective interpretations of this behavior as it pertains to projective techniques.
