WPA Period Oil Painting “Peroqueria”by Becerra
This wonderful oil painting is done in the dark style of the WPA, showing a worker at his trade. In this case, it is a Latin barber shop, or “Peroqueria”. The customers leaning back in the chair, while the barber is in mid-shave, holding a straight razor. The work is oil on canvas, and unframed. There is some edge wear to the paint, and some paint crazing in the clients hair area. The work is signed Becerra in the lower right corner.
Dimensions: 26 inches tall, 20 inches wide, 1 inch deep
