Calder mobile childhood animation art style c.1961-3 original gouache painting A+Brian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
untitled- theme is: Little Girl with her birthday party presents.
(Children's animation & illustration art- mid 20th century).
Great piece of modern art with a very strong and attractive mid-20th century aesthetic.
One of a kind, looks worthy of being a professional television animation film cel, or hung today in a children's book or art museum setting. A+ image in our opinion.
Scene shows the party girl in her party dress, still opening her birthday gifts which include a record player, a new chalkboard, small transistor radio, a Calder mobile, a telescope and stuffed tiger.
Created early 1960's, likely 1961-63, perhaps New York City. In the style of the Duvoisins, No name anywhere, anonymous, but clearly a very talented artist with a great personal style.
Wonderful mid-20th century original art relating to childhood.
Wonderful technique and aesthetic style, reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera Studio and Flintstones & Jetson cartoons, sure to draw favorable and admiring attention where ever hung.
Light old glue reside or tape staining at top edge or across bottom, both easily/ readily matted out if desired by framer. Surface appears as painted, any flaws trivial.
