A large and charming naive primitive watercolour depicting The Creation of the World.

A newspaper sheet, found backing the painting, with a date of  June 1939, makes this painting very poignant.  The newspaper sheet being full of details of the upcoming conflicts that led to WW2. Newspaper accompanies this painting.
