7.   Politi, Leo   ORIGINAL ART - GOUACHE PAINTING OF YOUNG GIRLS SINGING By Leo Politi   Picture
Signed and dated 1942. This is a gouache painting by Leo Politi, artist, author, and illustrator, known for his stories in writing and depictions in art of the young children and their parents and culture in the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. This painting is of three young girls singing. The girl in the center is holding a (song? ) book and the eyes of all three are lowered or closed as if following from the book or singing from memory. They all have long sleeve blouses and skirts and are wearing sandals. Completed in reds and neutrals - no background scene. The medium to deep reds and neutrals are vibrant and intense. Signed and dated 1942 in the upper right corner. This painting was previously framed and there is what appears to be a burn mark at what was, most likely, the frame opening which is 10 7/8" high x 9 7/8" wide. There is a pencil border drawn beyond that at 11 ¾" high x 10 1/8" wide. The outside dimensions of the paper are 15 ¼" high x 11 7/8" wide. This print has been professionally top hinged and matted using archival materials to fit an 18' x 14' frame (frame not included) . No other glue was used in matting, however, there are remnants of glue at the edges of the watercolor paper, most likely from the original old framing job. There may have been an original wash for the background of a faint, light green, which has turned a rich, solid beige which is very complimentary to the colors in the painting. The image is modest and charming. There is a half circle indent in the paper near the foot of the girl on the right. The print is clean and without soil or stains. The matboard has been precisely cut, workmanship is professionally fine, the camera work is imperfect. ; .
