A Cannibal’s Day
A series of four amusing art Deco era original paintings by the French artist Th. Andlauer depicting a group of African cannibals progressing their way through a typical day.
The first picture shows them in a state of hunger, the second having successfully captured their meal, in the third they are celebrating the feast and the final image is of them washing the dishes.
Simple but clever drawing, with the subjects full of movement and certain to raise a smile when looked at.
We've had the four pictures mounted and framed together in a single frame measuring 55.5 cm high by 69 cm wide. Each image is approximately 22.5 by just over 29 cm wide.
The light area showing at top right in the first two photographs is simply reflection in the glass.
