This is the type of fascinating artwork that one loves or hates. It is titled "Der Monk" (or "The Monk" in English) giving us the European origin. The mixed media includes graphite, which makes it more likely to be German or Austrian.The artist has signed in a monogram type signature. I don't recognize the signature, but hopefully will be able to have it identified at some point in the future.
Media: Gouache, pastel and graphite.
Size: 11" by 8 2/3".
Condition: Very Good.
Circa: 20th Century.
