I just love the classic "Big Eyed Art" of the 60's and 70's, a genre originated by the wonderful artist Margaret Keane.
Below is a piece by one of her numerous imitators. I found this particular print at a local flea market, a bargain at only one dollar!
Honestly, my infatuation with this type of art spawned from my love of kitsch, but over the years I've really come to love these "doe-eyed waifs" and treasure them among my favorite pieces of art. I truly love the sad-but-pretty images these artists mass-produced during this fad, and proudly hang them on the walls of the compound.
I've got several more similar prints, and I'll share some of those a little later.
