|Children at Play by Gertrude Halsband|
The card is of a painting by Gertrude Halsband whose paintings of cats seem to be popular judging from the internet but then it is their base for taking over the world. The back to back houses and red brickwork on the card seem to suggest the action is taking place in northern England. The only painting I found in a national collection is at the Tameside Museum and Gallery in Ashton Under Lyne so perhaps we might guess she was local to there. The only thing for definite I can find out about her is her dates 1917-1981 and the fact that her work appears in the book "A World of Their Own: Twentieth Century Naive Painters". A mystery but her art lives on.
