This adorable, original mixed media art is by an unnamed child artist in Denmark. Well first name only, Sonja. The artist used several materials, starting with a piece of corrugated cardboard and adding a burlap mesh, watercolor paints and bits of torn paper.
She also painted on the back in Danish in her child's hand, "I venskab, til Grete fra Sonja" which translates to "In friendship, to Grete from Sonja" Grete is a shortened version of Margaret.
The country of origin is Denmark, the exact age is unknown, but it arrived with dated pieces from the 1940s to the 1960s.
The finished artwork was placed in a corrugated matte and framed. The photos include one shot in bright light and another in indirect light. The frame was badly damaged, so this once cherished artwork is now unframed. Hopefully, it will find a new home soon.
Size: App 14" x 9 1/2" with 9" x 4" viewable.
