Nursery Update – Kitsch print

I can’t believe its Sunday evening already – where has the weekend gone?

I did a spot of op-shopping this weekend and found this gorgeous retro print of a little boy and his dog standing in the rain. I think it is a “kitsch” type of print but I’m just guessing from what little research I’ve done on the net. It is very “vintage” and I thought it would be a perfect addition to the nursery – not to mention too cute to pass on.

I did a little restoration on the frame – that is I painted it white to lighten the picture up a bit and of course to match the nursery décor.

How cute is it? *giggles*


Does anyone know about these types of prints? If you do or have one of your own, please do show and tell!

Big eye art was common in the 1950's and 60's. The original artist was a woman named Margaret Keane. She painted waifs and another artist Gig painted 'pity kitties', They were copied and mass produced. We had a set as kids and that was in the 70's.
Big eye art has re-emerged with artists such as Mark Ryden following the trend.
