This is nice portrait of a man. Signed lower left, Barta ’22. It is the canvas only without stretcher bars. The painting looks great but would need some light cleaning and varnish to perfect. Will make a great piece of art once restored and framed or to be enjoyed as it is. This was the information given to me orally at an Estate sale. At an early age, Alvin Barta would sit in the Denver train station and paint quick portraits of people to make extra money for his family. As he grew older he was known to travel to Albuquerque and other Western states to apply the same trade to make a living. This was left over from people who had to rush off to catch a connecting train or did not pay. For whatever reason it was kept. This will make a great conversational piece and part of history. This canvas measures about 12 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
