Object Description
Colorful cartoon watercolor print by Theo Angeli mounted on a heavy poster-board backing. This painting shows the inside of a Greek American butcher shop. At the top is the store's sign with an American flag on one side and the Greek flag on the other. There's a butchered pig hanging by its feet on the left, three butchered fowl hanging top/center, and several butchered lamb/goats hanging on the right.   The floor is tiled with red and white checkerboard patterned floor tile. The back wall appears black.  The proprietor is in the foreground sharpening a knife - there is a cut of meat on a huge sawed off log being used as a butchering table.  He is an older man with only a little hair around the sides and a full white mustache.  He is wearing blue and white striped shirt and pants and a bloody apron with a red handprint on it.
Origin
Theo Anglei was most likely an American cartoon artist of Greek heritage who painted these as a hobby, probably around the 1960's.
