A favourite print and mixed media piece from my Leitmotif portfolio .
First hair model I’ve painted with obviously dark hair – which I found slightly disconcerting .. The print in the magazine was fading … so at the least I’ve preserved her 15 minutes of salon fame . She’s from around 1950 and East German – another young maiden from Dresden.
Topical and amusing costume from a vintage German magazine. A single page – very fragile – the date has torn from the top making it hard to identify the exact time and place. There is a headline ‘ Auf einer kleinen bank im park ‘(On a small bench in the park) which might mean something to German readers ?
