The Lookout
My fiance and I went to this flea market type place yesterday and bought something that looks like a framed print . It says "Keane" in the lower left hand corner 1962. It is called "The Lookout" and it has a little girl peeking around the corner of a door with a small black kitten at her feet. It looks like they are on a beach or lake shore. I can't find any info on this particular thing. Any info on it would be appreciated. It has a price of 55 or 44$ on the back of the print as well.

Thanks!

KEANE PRINTS
Some of the prints I own are from the 1960's and they have Walter Keane's name printed on them. I know the story about the court thing. Still, there you are, someone gave him permission to print his name on the prints. In any event, they are old prints and beautiful. I still have the original Keane prints from my childhood. The rest of the collection I have been slowly building by buying them on ebay.

Walter (but really Maragaret) Keane
The world famous "Big Eye" paintings had their beginning in San Francisco over 50 years ago, by the artist Margaret Keane. In time they also became known and referred to as "Waifs," "Keane," "Sad Eyes," and many other titles, all depicting the unique styles of this very creative woman. You may be surprised to hear the artist is a woman. You see, for many years she was married to a man who claimed credit for what she painted. To prove she was in fact the artist and not her former husband, she painted in court before a Federal Judge and jury, an original oil on canvas painting. When her ex-husband was asked to paint by the judge, his reply was: "I can't today, because I have a sore shoulder." Needless to say Margaret won the case and she continues to paint those Big Eyes we have come to love so dearly

Margaret Keane
I believe she signs her paintings a MDH Keane. Her husband was Walter. He apparently had claimed to be the painter of the early work of hers. A court case settled that claim as false.
