“Chums” – Boy with Blonde Curls and His Puppy, print by Jane Freeman

Sometimes it’s a bit frustrating to gather information on a piece of artwork.

The boy’s blonde curls and his puppy’s perked up ears make a great combination suggesting innocence and sweetness!  Who wouldn’t love to hang this anywhere in your home?

I do have to admit, however, that sometimes it’s a bit frustrating to gather good information on a piece of artwork.

After trying several combinations of search terms, I finally found the name of the artist on eBay (!), and from there was able to glean more about this watercolor print.  

The artist, Jane Freeman, was born in England in 1871 and died on September 23, 1963. She was a well-known portrait artist who painted Albert Schweitzer and Mother Cabrini.

This particular piece has been identified by several different names, the most common of which is “Chums”, referring to the relationship between the boy and his dog.  There’s another of a young girl and her cat, which is often paired with this one.

I love this innocence that comes across in this lovely print.

Dimensions: 17.5″ W x 21″ H.

Condition:   The wood frame is in excellent condition, as is the print.   The backing seems to have been replaced at some point, as it’s been taped in place.  The print is somewhat loose in the frame.

Price:  $25.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.38 for a total of $26.38. Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
