A vintage large painting we have titled Red Heads. Can't get enough of the large, splash of color this piece brings to the space. Two women flank the canvas on either side. Their red hair and rich makeup give a stunning contrast against the blue ground.
If you look closely, there is a ghostly image of a third woman in the middle. Perhaps the artist intended the piece to have three figures and later changed their mind.
In original black painted wood frame. Frames of this nature are typical in the late mid century. Frame has some surface wear and is in found condition. The painting is in good condition with no holes or cracks, The paint has a nice texture, almost a light impasto technique.
