Big Eyed Girls - paintings by EDEN


Big Eyed Girls
artist: EDEN (first name unknown)
circa 1970's
purchased for $10

Apparently, in the 60's and 70's, there was a wave of artists (Keane, Eden, Gig, Igor) doing paintings of people and animals with big eyes. To me, Eden was the best of this group. And these prints are some of the best of his (or her) work. These are super cute.

Growing up back in the 60s and 70s, my sisters and I had this paintings in our bedrooms. We had 5 different paintings of the big eyed girls. In 1995, my daughter was about 4, I found two in a garage sale and could not resist. My daughter is now 18 and I found them in the attic...they could be yours...

I own an actual original painting by Eden and is the black-haired sister to the redhead you have pictured there. Are those 3 original art or prints? Gotta love the Edens!
