‘Shirley Temple’ is a fantastic Limited Edition print by contemporary artist Sarah Kayci.
This is a layered piece of art of, originally an oil painting, of a young Shirley Temple with the troops of World War II & the American Flag in the background. In the foreground in pink is written “Shirley Temple Keeps It Real”
In the grip of the Depression in the 1930s, America needed Shirley Temple. The dimpled, curly-haired child star sang, danced, sobbed and grinned her way into audiences’ hearts.
“As long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right,” President Roosevelt declared.
She was America’s top box-office draw from 1935 to 1938, ahead of such grown-up stars as Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford.
This print is signed and numbered by the artist & is from an edition of 50.
