How many of you remember "paint by number" kits? This pair of "oriental" inspired paintings were marked 1952 and 1953. I can still remember the pungent little plastic pots of oil color.
those who don't know, paint by number kits were invented, developed and
marketed in 1950 by Max S. Klein and Dan Robbins.
Klein was an engineer and owner of the Palmer Paint Company of Detroit, Michigan---Dan Robbins, a commercial artist---The kits came with little compartmentalised boxes where the numbered colour pigments were stored. (My earliest paint by number memory was THE LAST SUPPER!) You can read more here.
They're followed by the Ideal Diner Set, 1950's, and featured in a previous auction at SeriousToyz. It sold for $239.68 at auction.
