Small is Beautiful

This is the phrase that came to mind after I bought a tiny, original, oil painting in a local charity shop and so this is what I Googled. I had no idea that the phrase was originally the title of a book by E F Schumacher. The book is called Small is Beautiful A Study of Economics. However the phrase came from his teacher, Leopoldo Kohr, who inspired a movement opposed to the “cult of bigness” describing himself as a philosophical anarchist and I could go on….

The actual painting measures 6cm x 9cm. There is no clue about where it is or who painted it.
