Original 1970s Nancy Boecker Acrylic on Board Painting - Big Eyed Yellow Owls

This one has it all. Plenty of color and mid-century charm. Wonderful in any 60s, 70s or eclectic décor. Also a great gift for anyone who loves or collects owls! It is signed Boecker but not dated.

This wonderful painting of a pair of big-eyed owls was created by an artist named Nancy Boecker during the 1970s. Unfortunately, many of her earlier works, including this one, for some reason were erroneously attributed to a German artist named Wolfgang Boecker. Thankfully, I was contacted by someone who loves and collects her paintings (thank you Lorraine).

Because of that contact, I was able to locate Nancy Boecker who has confirmed that this cool owl painting is one of hers. A Google Image search for Wolfgang Boecker will produce many of Nancy's paintings that sellers have erroneously attributed to him! She has verified that those are also hers. Once you've seen it, her early work is easy to spot--ships, flowers, owls, etc., all painted with the same heavy, thick layers of acrylic on board. She currently does watercolors and even has a small shop on Etsy, PaintbrushHill.

Condition: The huge eyes and the choice of colors give this particular painting a definite sixties or seventies vibe! The simple frame is almost 2 inches deep even though the painting itself is not more than ¼ inch thick. Hanger is on the back. There are a few little scuffs on the wood frame. The picture itself is excellent. On the back of the board, there is a splotch of white (paint?) and in pencil, “Sbt”.

I love to ship internationally and have had many happy non-US customers! If you live outside the U.S. but are interested in purchasing something in my shop or have questions, please contact me. I will try to answer you as quickly as possible. If you are interested in a shipping estimate, just let me know which country you live in.

Size: 12-½” square (framed), picture is 11” square
Frame is 1-¾” deep

Note: I will refund any excess shipping charges
