An oil on panel painting by Spanish painter Luis Franco Salinas will be presented in this Kodner Galleries sale (lot #27). Titled Piano Lesson, the work has been signed by the artist in the top right corner and tagged on the ornate frame. This work is expected to sell for between $5,000 and $7,000. A native of Valencia, Salinas gained fame and fortune by primarily creating genre paintings. He specialized in coats and military subjects. Later in life, Salinas turned almost exclusively to portraiture and commissions. The available painting shows two young women at a piano. With the exception of one lady’s white dress, the work is dominated by rich, dark shades of brown and black.
