Vintage German Folk Art painting on raw canvas from the 1950s or early 1960s. The painting is done on raw canvas and is framed under glass. It depicts 8 children dressed in colorful traditional German Costumes. The photographs were taken at various angles to try and reduce glare. There is very little if any glare on the close-ups of the different sections. Any very bright white or chalky areas are reflections. The entire piece measures approximately 29 3/4" x 10", the inside canvas area is 28 3/4" x 9".
The store name and information are stamped on the back. I darkened the photograph so you can see it better. The address is in German. The store still exists and lists itself as an antique and gift shop. Part of the stamp is not legible and I put stars in place of the letters I couldn't read
