Leopoldo Romañach (Cuban, 1862-1951)
Signed "L Romanach" l.l., identified on a barcode label from Sotheby's New York affixed to the frame backing paper.
Oil on canvas, 13 1/2 x 12 3/4 in. (34.5 x 32.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Canvas trimmed and laid down on heavy pressed paperboard which appears to be period, tape remnants, label fragment, and staining to the reverse of the paperboard support.
Provenance: Sotheby's New York, Important Latin American Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture, and Haitian Paintings, November 27, 1985, Lot 174; to the current private Massachusetts collection.
The tiny fragment of a silver and black label on the reverse seems to be similar to the label on Domingo Ramos's painting, which is from La Venecia, Habana.
