This is a rare and fantastic Oil painting of a Navajo man in classic Navajo dress or the time period. Classic looks and extremely well displayed in this painting by artist Agustin Martinez. The painting was executed on the back of an old tin advertising sign from Las Vegas NM. Of the 20's-30's time period, and after a bit if helpful research, it was determined that there were 2 Agustin Martinez listed in Las Vegas area at the time.
Not much other info was determined other than this guy was good! Its a great looking painting in a nice crusty finish in a real fine period frame.
The piece is signed in the lower rt. Its in wonderful as found condition and was prized by, like myself, its past owner. It is 16" wide and 18.75" tall in a period gold frame. I have included a photo of the old sign portion that has the painting on the reverse. Cant make out all of it as it was just a portion of the sign, but it was clearly in Las Vegas NM.
The 2 holes are from nails where it must have been hung somewhere that way. All part of the charm! Thanks for checking out my Auctions and PLEASE, check out and see the other cool stuff I have listed currently!! My items run from download day Friday to final day every Monday.
