This painting was given to me by a friend and I have no clue where she obtained the painting. I looked up the artists name Stanley Young and he was affiliated with the Art Institute in Chicago. I do know that he did serve in the armed forces and may have been in Asia. This is all the information I have. It is painted on linen and there are little tacks all around the canvas instead of staples. The painting is being sold without the frame, the frame is very heavy, it is just to show the painting.
