Its a painting of a beautiful spanish woman with a man standing behind her kinda inthe shadows. She is wearing a red shawl just off her shoulders. The artists signature starts with a P and there is a yct on the end. I know I have seen the painting before but I just cant place it. Its driving me crazy!!

if have found the image online then you can just create a link to it using the img tag.

If you have a picture of it, then you need to upload it to a site that allows sharing like photobucket and link to that.

@parados,
Jose Puyet

he did lots of these kitschy paintings and there are many reproductions of varying quality to be found in second-hand shops

@crooksy1,
You probably saw this work reproduced on the cover of a romance novel. It is a work of illustration rather than fine art. GreenWitch is right; it is "kitschy."

@JLNobody,
I really like the photo with all those baby dolls. Who ever did the arranging seems to be trying to imply the future for those two love birds.

@JLNobody,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Puyet

most of his work wasn't to my taste, but it definitely was popular and original oils still sell at auction

Quote:
José Puyet (April 22, 1922 - August 28, 2004), full name José Puyet Padilla,[1] was a Spanish, modern impressionist[2] painter, whose popularity spread throughout Spain and the United States.[3]


Quote:
Puyet's art eventually earned him a favorable reputation. He gave his first exhibition at Carrera de San Jerónimo de Madrid. The exhibition was a success that led to 42 more exhibitions until Carrera de San Jerónimo de Madrid finally closed. Puyet also exhibited in Barcelona, Valencia, Málaga, San Francisco, New York, Montreal, Miami, Monterrey, San Mateo, California, Houston, Boston, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, and Milán.

In 1984, Puyet was listed in the publication Who's Who in Art. In 1988, he was inducted as a member of the Real Academy of Fine Art of San Telmo, in Malaga.
[edit] Legacy

Today, his works are owned by families such as the House of Alba and the House of Grimaldi.[4] Plácido Domingo and Luis Olivo maintain sizable collections of Puyet's work.[3]

Hey, I framed one of those not too long ago (about a year). I think it may have been the original because it was pretty old and on canvas. I want to say I remember the old paint smell. The lady who brought it in said it had hung in her grandmother's house all her life and it was the only thing she wanted when her grandma passed away. When we re-framed it and she saw it for the first time she cried and it made me want to cry.

@parados,
Hello:
I have the exact same painting. The artist is Jose Puyet and he just passed away a couple of years ago. I was wondering if you knew the name of the painting. Any info would be great...Thanks so much...

@fujow,
I believe it may be called "Lady of Castille"
