An endearing print from the mid-1920's to 30's of a little girl sitting upon a bench and listening to the song of Spring, as sung by a Robin in a birch tree. The original painting was done by the German artist Simon Glucklich and the young girl in the print is his daughter who was blind. There are two versions of the print, one with the girl's eyes closed (a nod to her handicap) and another with them open. This is the eyes open version. The print is surrounded by a period wood frame that's painted gold and is matted with a glass overly. It is nicely sized at 16 18/ inches by 13 1/8 inches and has cardboard on the back that is held on by nails with and old wire attached for hanging. The print still has strong color but shows its age with some light foxing and light soiling to the matt behind the glass. The matt is also slightly wavy on the bottom that can only be seen when viewed from above, which is not your typical viewing angle. The frame is sturdy and in good condition with some age related scuffs that lend rather than detract. A sweet vision of days gone by and sure to bring back memories (or create some). Very charming, we're sure you'll be pleased.
