A Just discovered, a very rare estate find; Large oil on Masonite by Francis Newton Souza, titled "Head in a Landscape" (approx. 35" x 47-1/2").  In his lifetime, Francis Newton Souza was unable to sell most of his paintings, especially in India, where landscapes, depiction of deities, and other things religious, were selling like hot cakes. Many of his works were sold for more than a million dollars after his death. At an auction in 2008, his painting "Birth" created a record for being the most expensive Indian art ever sold in an auction to date. The painting was sold for a whopping 2.5 million USD. When the same painting was resold in 2015, it fetched over 4 million USD.
