Oil on canvas painting of a delightful tropical landscape with verdant vegetation and towering royal palms, 24" by 36" (28 1/2" by 40 1/2" as nicely framed), signed at lower right by artist J. GARCIA and dated there 2001. The colors and composition are strongly in the style of the important artist from Cuba, Domingo Ramos, who created such landscapes in the 1920's and 1930's. I am unable to locate any information on this artist despite an intensive search. The party from whom I purchased it thought there might be a connection to Colombia. Regardless, the painting is very, very finely crafted, of a good size, and most attractive. It is difficult to paint palm trees accurately, but this artist clearly has studied the royal palm and captured its essence. The royal palm is native to Cuba but is found in various other tropical countries. The painting is in excellent, clean, wall-ready condition.
