Probably an illustration for a magazine or book| this oil on canvas says "Children's Bazaar Nov. 6." The artist was a skilled realist who enhanced his figures and other elements with dark outlines a la Roualt. While not a folk painting because the artist was a professional illustrator| the subject of the work would reside happily in a folky interior.
c. 1940s - 36" high x 26" wide - Excellent condition|
