Object Description
Colorful cartoon watercolor print by Theo Angeli mounted on a heavy poster-board backing. This painting shows a young woman at the beach with an older man and woman standing on either side of her.  They are holding a towel around her while she changes clothes.   The man is on the left; he is wearing a white straw hat with a black band around it, a white tank top, white shorts and bare feet.  He has a gray mustache and his eyes are looking directly overhead as if to avoid seeing anything behind the towel he is holding up.  The older lady is on the right; she has white hair covered by a yellow scarf with red polka-dots, gray eyebrows and red lipstick.  She is wearing a black sundress with black spaghetti straps. Scattered around them on the beach are five young men laying on blankets, all of them watching her with big eyes and shy smiles on their faces.
Origin
Theo Anglei was most likely an American cartoon artist of Greek heritage who painted these as a hobby, probably around the 1960's.
