    I found this painting in a thrift store.
    All I know is that it is a Haitian theme.
    There is a tack in one of the pics, this tack was in the canvas and maybe helpful in dating the art.
    It is signed Renand in the lower right corner.
    The back of the canvas shows yellowing from age.
    I found it unframed and had been folded before I found it.
    The view is 16" tall and 12" wide. The overlap is an additional 1-1/4 to 3".
    Please let me know if I can offer any other information and Thank You for your consideration.

      That is a very interesting history of Haitian culture.
      The mystery is solved.
      Thank You Celiene! ????

      CherryPickersDelight, Celiene, Wow. :-)

      I'm preserving the text here from that eBay listing in case it disappears:

      *snip*

      This painting measures 18" x 13". It is painted on artist canvas or artist cloth. Folks, here's another favorite. Look at the colors... I'm a color guy.

      It is signed too.

      Back in the early 1990's you might remember the flood of Haitians that made their way to Florida. Well, at the same time there was a flood of Haitians making their way to Panama. I got involved because I had a Haitian friend named Lucas. When the Haitians arrived in Panama Lucas got wind of it and met up with them. Strangely, they all brought art items as their currency. Lucas would call me and off to trade I would go. Leather masks, wood items and paintings were the order of the day. All those art pieces are long gone but the Haitians aren't. Enough of them stayed in Panama to give Haitian art a presence there. Some are artists and produce in Panama but it didn't take them long to figure out importing Haitian art and selling it in the strong economy of Panama made sense. Was this painting painted in Haiti or Panama? Who cares. It is beautiful regardless.
