This is a very nice portrait of a gypsy or pirate. Please note that all white in pictures are from light reflections and is not damage to painting. Painting is still in great condition. This original oil on canvas measures 18 inches by 24 inches. In the gilded frame it measures 24 3/4 inches by 30 1/2 inches. This piece is signed by the artist on the lower left. It has beautiful vivid colors for its age with a gloss finish and was painted approximately in the 1920's. This would look great in a study or living room. If you would like more pictures please ask.
