J.E. Bancara (Spanish, 20th Century) was active in Spain, and was known for his art. Very little of his artwork has come to the U. S. Those paintings of his that did make it across the ocean were sold through galleries and not at auction. I saw this and loved it. It has the eternally and universally uplifting subject of mother and child. Perhaps a gift for Christmas, Mother's Day, or a Mother's birthday.
