Hello! Here’s an original Charles Samuel La Monk (1910- 1990) April 1978 oil on canvas portrait of a Native American / Indian subject. The person I purchased it from mentioned that Mr. LaMonk painted at a church across the street from where she and her husband lived at the time, and gave this work to them. It is also personally signed on the back.
The frame measures 28” X 24”, the canvas itself is 16” X 20”, and the inside diameter of the framed work measures 15-1/2” X 19-1/4”. There is a small spot on the right-hand side of the painting, which may be a removable stain, or part of the original art. This is the only issue I can see with it. There are 10 photos included so one can make an accurate evaluation before purchasing. NOTE: In the third photo, there are dark blue tones in the hair of the subject.
