Colorful cartoon watercolor print by Theo Angeli mounted on a heavy poster-board backing. This picture depicts a family at the beach all sitting in an extended motorcycle. The father has a grand mustache and is wearing matching yellow and white vertically striped pants and jacket with no shirt underneath, a white fedora-type hat with a black band, round sunglasses with gray lenses and has no shoes on - He's driving the motorcycle with his right hand and holding a white dog with his left. A young man behind him in a blue and white striped shirt and baseball hat. A young woman sits behind him with a white hat on, white cat-eye sunglasses with blue lenses and red lipstick - she doesn't look happy. The mother brings up the rear on a slightly reclining chair wearing a read sundress and straw hat. On the extension behind her, there is a large rope-covered bottle of retsina (wine) and picnic basket with foodstuffs.
Theo Anglei was most likely an American cartoon artist of Greek heritage who painted these as a hobby, probably around the 1960's.
