This vintage mid 20th century woodblock print is by the American artist Louise August. She became well known in the 1960's with, at that time, an avant-garde impressionism that could be disturbing/dark to some observers. Three nude starry eyed children are the foreground of this limited edition
work of art. Each child is holding a strange appearing creature under the seeming supervisory eye of a peculiar looking animal/bird like "governess" in the background. Also in the background, one finds a pair of hanging marionettes observing these children at play. The wood block is numbered (43/50),
titled (Children's Games) & artist signed in pencil in the lower margin.
