Fine Art/oil painting


I have acquired a painting by an artist named Alberto Ruiz Vela who studied in Mexico City at the academy of fine arts.  Known for his paintings on Mexico City Bull fights.  He is a muralist and has been successful throughout the country.  The painting was distributed by Martin Lowitz of Los Angeles, CA.  
The Painting is in pinks, greens and whites, 3 buildings, a river boat with man.  Frame looks original.  Painting is #'d 1030.  Any information that you could provide on this would be so helpful.  I thank you in advance for your time.


Erin: Keep the painting and wait some years, this is a new painter in the market but in a few years he is going to be an expensive painter, so congratulations. Take a look below:

I have been researching, dealing, and appraising 19th and 20th Century European Art (1880-1950) for the last 16 years. You could ask me any doubt you have about the most important Impressionist-Expressionist French-Spain painters. Including graphics/prints. I can answer questions in Spanish, too.
