1930s Kleur en Profiel (?): Snow White in Orange Coat Dress (Arnheim Collection)

Hand-painted on plywood. This is a wall figure of the Arnheim Collection. A German soldier father had signed these wall figures and sent them to his family back home. It says: “Arnheim 1942.” He also wrote on the back: “This is how we poor men dance around you women.” The Arnheim collection consists of 8 wall figures, signed by the same father. Maybe he never came home in the end.
