I've been able to find, online, a few other similar portraits by this artist. They all seem to be the same woman, maybe an ideal woman in his mind, maybe his wife or lover. Always with the same look- gold earrings, a flower in her hair, pink lipstick, a vase, and a prominent bosom.This was in a local estate. Size is 18 by 21 1/2 inches. It has a few scuffs around the edges, and a 1 inch tear in the lower left center (on her right ribs). Please look closely at the pics.
I didn't try it, but for some reason, my camera chose the exposure to make the painting look a bit brighter than it is in person. It has nicer, mellow, old look to it that, to me, looks better than the pictures.The item "Nice Vintage 1930s-50's Portrait of a woman by Cortes oil on canvas signed" is in sale since Thursday, June 23, 2016.
