Fine Art/Identify Sketch of Girl

Question
First of all Hi Brent,

My father purchased this sketch in the 80's in the UK. It's just a print stuck on chipboard so I presume it's just a warehouse print but I am hoping not because I really like this piece. Please take a look at the pictures below (if you would like me to take clearer photographs please contact me).

Thankyou,
Zoe

Answer
Hello Zoe,

Thank you for the images and details.  I do not recognize the artist and the name does not show up in any references that I use.  It appears to be a very fine work.  When you say print do you mean it is some type of offset lithograph (AKA poster) affixed to the board?  If so I agree with your comment that it is probably some type of mass produced work for the decorative art market.

Cheers, Brent
