1960s Ravi-Kunst: Hans in Luck without Base
22. September 1660
Hand-painted on plywood, 23cm. From the 1960s onwards there was a tendency to show the faces on fairy tale wood pictures as young children’s faces. The technical term for this is Kindchenschema. Google this: “cuteness wiki”. There they explain the Kindchenschema. The most striking and simplified attribute is this: Big heads.
