A fragment of the painting of Margaret Keane in an abandoned city

Oil, canvas, 40x40. 2017-2018

Margaret Keane came up with "big eyes", drawing portraits of children.
Later, critics accused her of kitsch.
After Margaret Keane big eyes began to be used everywhere, from cartoons, to children's toys.

"Margaret D. H. Keane (born Peggy Doris Hawkins) is an American artist. Creator of the "big-eyed waifs", Keane is famous for drawing paintings with big eyes, and mainly paints women, children and animals in oil or mixed media.
Keane's paintings are recognizable by the oversized, doe-like eyes of her subjects. Keane says she was always interested in the eyes and used to draw them in her school books. She began painting her signature "Keane eyes" when she started painting portraits of children. "Children do have big eyes. When I'm doing a portrait, the eyes are the most expressive part of the face. And they just got bigger and bigger and bigger", Keane said. Keane focused on the eyes, as they show the inner person more. Keane attributes Amedeo Modigliani's work as a major influence on the way she has painted women since 1959. Other artists who influenced her in use of color, dimension and composition include Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt and Picasso." (Wikipedia)

Margaret Keane's "Big eyes" created a whole direction in animation and dekorative design.
