Art Collecting: Little Girl With Bluebird Framed Art

The First

The first picture was obtained in the late 1980's, from a previous generation. It was apparently a print from a newspaper. The picture is of a little girl, looking up at a bird in a tree. A bluebird.

The clothing of the little girl. The hairstyle. The bird. The simpleness of the painting. The colors of the bird and the tree and the girl, all add to the charm.

In No Particular Order

The rest were obtained from garage sales, antique shops and flea markets. Each photo was obtained in a breath holding fashion, whispered excitement, pondering.

A lot of elbow jabbing, whispering and delight is the scenario when we find these pictures. The art is not of the same artists, but we have several that the artists are the same.

The paintings have been done over the years by several different people. Zula Kenyon 1873 - 1947, Florence Lindsey, Donald Zolan 1937-2009, Simon Glucklich 1863-1943, Ariane Beigneux 1918 - ?


With buying these pictures, we heard some stories about each artist. How accurate the stories are is immaterial. It's just a story that was passed on with the sale of the picture.

One such story leads to some pondering: a sales person at an antique shop, offered that the picture seemed to be of a girl looking at a bluebird, but in actuality, the girl was blind and she was listening to the bird.

So. That simply adds to the mystique of the painting. Was there a small girl that posed. Maybe, or maybe not. There have been several people who have painted this same picture.

Pictures We Have

Just so you can appreciate how many different pictures that we personally have collected, and by no means are we done collecting them. If we find more, we will definitely add to our collection.


Girl with Lark

There is one of the pictures that the girl is similar, but the bird is not a bluebird, but a lark.

      Thanks for your comment, Louise Powles. I agree, it's fun to find these pictures in places that you wouldn't expect them to be.
