Margaret Keane: Mother of Big-Eye Art I have this print! Got it at an antique shop around Christmas because it reminded me of the portraits of myself as a toddler where I would cry before the photo shoot.
This conjures up some odd emotions from my childhood. I was so terribly sad for this "Pity Puppy", yet I couldn't help looking at it. These were popular in the 60's and 70's and this one was created by artist Margaret Keane and is known as the "mother of big-eye art".
