This is a most CHARMING portrait of a Mid-20th Century girl-child! She looks like she is straight out of a 50's-era children's book or magazine ad...

I am not an art expert, so I am not 100% sure what the media is, but my best estimation is that it is an oil pastel drawing. (It is painted/drawn on heavy manilla-colored art paper.) Those more knowledgeable should be able to tell from the extreme closeup detail of the eye.

There is also a real MYSTERY here - on her pink dress is a faint "palette" shaped logo with what appears to be the words, "Vanity Fair". I have not been able to identify this mark, nor associate the picture with the magazine, but, who knows... I have a strong feeling that this painting may be a real "SLEEPER" ... If anyone has any information on this picture, or that mark - I LOVE TO LEARN!

Regardless, this is a wonderful piece of vintage artwork and Americana, well framed, sure to bring smiles and conversation to any room!

*****

This is framed under glass in an antiqued wood frame of the period.

Frame Size = 15" W x 18" H

Sheet Size = 11" W x 14" H

*****

This is in VERY GOOD Condition!

Only some very minor issues to mention for the sake of accuracy:

There is a very small tear at top edge, and a small nick on the right edge - both of which are already covered up by the edge of the frame, and a small water stain at bottom edge, which could easily be covered by a mat.
