A Boy and His Dog by Margaret Keane, circa 1960's

This item comes from my father's estate - he was a collector and took great care of his belongings. This small collection* includes four framed prints by Margaret Keane.

This print, in its frame, measures 7.5"' x 11.5" and is in very good condition with very little over-all wear. The backing paper is still there and there is a wire on the back for hanging.


*The complete collection consists of 4 framed prints:

1) "Lost" From the Joan Crawford Collection,
2) "A Boy and His Dog",
3) "No Dogs Allowed" and
4) "The Stray" From the collection of Bertram Borok, East Orange New Jersey.

Please feel free to ask any questions I haven't already answered in the above description; I have tried to be as detailed as possible.

The shipping cost is not exact -- it will change depending upon the buyers location and preferences.

ABOUT MARGARET KEANE:

In the 1960s, Margaret Keane's artwork was sold under the name of her husband, Walter Keane. She claimed the artwork was hers -- she brought a divorce suit against her husband and when they went to court, Margaret created a painting in front of the judge to prove that she was the artist. Walter declined to paint before the court, citing a sore shoulder. In 1986, the courts sided with her, enabling her to paint under her own name.

Her works while living in her husband's shadow tended to depict sad children in a dark setting, but after divorcing, moving to Hawaii, and becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses her paintings took on a happier, brighter style. Her website now advertises her work as having "tears of joy" or "tears of happiness".

Keane is a fixture in popular culture. Some of her well-known fans over the years have included actresses Joan Crawford and Natalie Wood, whom she painted portraits of; Filmmaker Tim Burton, who commissioned Keane to paint Lisa Marie; and animator Craig McCracken, whose characters, The Powerpuff Girls are based on Keane's 'waifs'; additionally the Girls' schoolteacher is named "Ms. Keane".
