These vintage Ozz Franca framed prints feature his big eyed sad children. They are both sealed and numbered.

The first print is of a "wide eyed hobo girl". She is wearing a white hat with a red ribbon, and a tuxedo type blouse with a black jacket. She has a cute button nose and a pouty mouth. This print is signed "Franca" on the right.

The second print displays a darling child clown with large eyes and sandy blonde hair. He sports a round red nose, pouty mouth, and ruffled blue collar. Print is signed "by" on the left, and his signature "Franca" mark on the right.

The frames are wood and 8-sided octagon shaped with a brass ring on top. The pictures are protected by glass and the back is sealed with stapled cardboard. The backs have the number "D 16265" and "Made in USA" stamped with black ink. There are attached silver toned hangers riveted to the back. There are remnants of a sticker that has been removed on the back of each. Perhaps a price sticker?

The frame measure 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and the exposed round print is 3 1/2" in diameter.

The framed prints are in very good condition. The brass rings show some wear and there are a few tiny scratches on the frame. The riveted hangers on the back have some rust.

A little history of Ozz França:

Born October 2, 1928, França (pronounced FRON-suh) grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and from an early age he showed talent as…and at 14 he won first prize at the annual Spring Salon Art Competition…He decided to devote his life to art. He held his first one-man show at the age of 18. Following what he would later say was the best advice anyone ever gave him, França came to the U.S, to accept a scholarship in Utah. A year later, he moved to Hollywood and began doing movie illustration for Walt Disney. After creating a spectacular body of art, Ozz França died in 1991.

A prolific artist to collect and enjoy!
