Offering a picture left to me by my great aunt and for which I have no real information.
This black and white work measures 22 1/2" X 26 1/2". It is professionally framed and under glass. An old tag on the back dates framing to 1983.
The art work is signed in pencil, D Minns and the date '82.
Featured is an old, black woman leaning out of the window of a wooden shack and selling either small fruits, or large nuts.
I love this picture. It has a great deal of subtle emotion. Whoever this artist is, he/she captured the feeling of heat, poverty and character, with amazing accuracy.
I think this may be a lithograph. There are no pixels, so it hasn't been mechanically produced.
Brown paper backing is torn, but aside from that, there is no damage.
A moving, beautiful piece.
