It's a Paul Detlefsen painting. I feel like I've seen it in a scary movie. Maybe where something came out of it? It's driving me crazy and Google isn't helping.

Biography Edit
Paul Detlefsen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark.[1] He was the son of a medical doctor.[citation needed] He studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before moving to Hollywood to build his reputation as a cartoonist.[citation needed] After not succeeding as an animator,[citation needed] he produced backdrops for films. He was nominated at the 17th Academy Awards, along with coworkers John Crouse and Nathan Levinson, for their work on the 1944 film The Adventures of Mark Twain.[1][3][4] The only other films Detlefsen is credited for are The Horn Blows at Midnight (1945), Escape in the Desert (1945), and Shadow of a Woman (1946),[1] but he spent 20 years at Warner Brothers Studios, eventually rising to be in charge of the art department that created matte backdrops.[5]

Detlefsen then shifted to a career in calendar artwork. His art was lithographed into calendars, reproductions, playing cards, jigsaw puzzles, mats for tables, and even four-foot wide wall murals.[6] His first calendar, published in 1951, was "The Good Old Days", which focused on landscape art.[2] In 1969, UPI estimated that 80% of all Americans had seen his work.[5]
