I was told that it was taken by the communist in the 60s and returned to rightful owners in the 90s where it was sold in an estate sale and I bought it from Bulgaria from the person who purchased it from the estate sale.

What does this mean?

Based on the signature, this is a work by Kees (Cornelis Theodorus Maria) Van Dongen (1877 - 1968). He was a Dutch painter known for fauve and expressionist painting-aristocratic portraits. This assessment does not serve as an authentication of this being an actual work by Kees Van Dongen. Based on the style of the hat the woman is wearing, the work should date to the 1920s - 1930s. Van Dongen's works are highly collected and he has a strong and large auction sale history. Again, this does not serve as an authentication of the work it is a presumption. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of known authentic works by this artist. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
