Portrait of a lady, poster of a girl.

I found this old hand colored 8x10 print of my Mother made circa the late fifties by Gibbs Studios in Stellenbosch, I guess my Mother must have been about 19 or 20 years old. I had to do about five hours of retouching to make it look pretty again because the print was never kept behind glass.
Please send me a mail if you know anything more about Gibbs Studio. Click to view bigger.
