Help solve a mystery


Recently a resident from Middleport brought a picture to this office asking for some help with identification.The picture was found behind another when it was taken apart for framing and has no identifying information such as a date or name of the artist.

It looks almost like the head was added to a prepared drawing of a child. The owner wonders if maybe an itinerant artist prepared the main portion of the picture and then added the head when requested by the parents of the child.  Maybe someone has something similar in their possession and might be able to help with information about the artist.  We’d love to hear from anyone who can give us some information.
