My father bought this when he was an executive Working in the Dominican Republic in the late 80s / Early 90s. I do not think that there was any other owner. I inherited it when he passed away in November 2022. If possible, I would like the worth today and also for November 2022. I have several paintings like this that I would like to sell and others I am keeping. I do not see any defects to the painting or frame except there is a white line in the shirt , but there are also other white areas in the shirt so maybe that is intentional
24 x 30 inches without frame
