The Baby ("Mikie")

80.00

As with all vintage portraits, we love to imagine the stories behind the artist him or herself, as well as the subject. Who was this infant? Why was he being painted and by whom? Someone who knew him well enough to call him by such a term of endearment as "Mikie." His grandmother taking a local art class? His mother testing her hand at art-making, something she'd abandoned since junior high school? We'll never know. But that's more than half the fun of it - the complete mystery and endless story-telling.
