Crying Boy

What a find. A few months ago, I found this print, unframed at a garage sale for $8.  Recently I sold some handmade treassure at a market and decide to frame my little darling.  While at the frame shop I walked into an op shop and found a girl version, for $12.  I couldn't leave her there, she needed a home, so I now ave 2 crying children. 


Why do they cry?  I don't know, but they are so lovely.  My kids are fascinated by them, as I am, but I can't keep collecting them can I?  That's a bit morbid, a house filled with crying children.
The girl print has some water damage at the bottom.  I am reluctant to change the dimensions of the print, but am unsure if I can remove the water marks, Tut!
They are both by an Artist called G or J Bragolin.  He has done numerous crying children.  But my little boy is by far the most beautiful. 
The crying boy looks a lot like Alby, except with brown eyes.

  1. Hiya if you google Bragolin you will find that the crying prints are associated with an urban myth!!!...Di

  2. Thanks. It's a little spooky, but only if you believe it.
