Fine Art/Rico Tomaso painting


I have a Rico illustration of a Hispanic woman dancing with a guitarist playing in the background in a courtyard setting. it is 16X20 in the original frame. can you tell me anything about it and possible value?

Dear Les,
Rico is known for his beautiful latino women and many of his portraits were printed on heavy cardboard with the appearance of brush strokes. If it is an original oil on canvas it will probably not show up in a search, but I can give you a price range for similar work. Are you certain it is an original? Please email photos of the front, back, and close up of the signature to
Kind regards,

Fine Art
