Two very nice examples of the big eyed children pictures that were popular in the 1960’s. These oil paintings are signed Pac and dated ’65. I could not find out any information on the artist. The eyes aren’t as exagerated as in the artist Margaret Keane’s famous big eyed children paintings but the style is similar.
I found a site that listed quite a few ‘big eyed children’ painters. Interesting to see the different styles.
Priced at $95 for the pair.
PLEASE NOTE THESE PAINTING ARE NOW SOLD!!!
This poster has some water damage to the top and bottom edges which has caused some rippling of the paper. On the bottom right is printed the following information: Goldman’s Art Gallery 93a Hanassi Haifa March 1979. Even with the water damage, I think the poster has some value and will be putting it up in my booth at Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Signed lithographs of this poster sell for upwards of $2,000.00. Gallery posters like this one can sell for over $200 if they are in good condition. This one will be modestly priced at around $40 due to the water damage.

I have always liked silhouette pictures. These were found at a local thrift store and I was thrilled to get them. They are reverse paintings on glass. I think these would be from the 1930’s or 40’s. The glass is slightly convex, adding some depth to the images.
Note: These have been SOLD
