    Inspired by The Museum of Bad Art collection of artworks by artists misguided into thinking they have talent, this original painting found at a thrift store is a mystery. I believe the subject is Juan de Acuna based on hard-to-read text painted at the bottom, but a mystery is the date 1422 appears above the painter's unreadable signature. From Wikipedia:

    "Juan de Acuña was the second Criollo (meaning that he was Spanish but born in the New World) to govern in New Spain. He was born in Lima in 1658, the son of Juan de Acuña and of Margarita Bejarano."
