First Painting

"First Oil Ptg." Age 12, 1928

This is the first known painting by Anthony Eterovich.  His statement about this period: "At first I found the...outline. I caught the likeness of a 7th grade boy seated next to me - but soon I found greater interest in the inside activity of everything I could see!"
Context: In 1928, Charles Lindbergh is awarded the medal of honor, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Herbert Hoover was elected President, and the Three Penny Opera by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill opened in Berlin.
