    Welcome, Cesar! If you haven't already done so, you'll want to do a Google Image search to see if you can find an on-line match for your painting. (That will help determine if it's a copy of a well-known work.) And then it would be helpful if you posted a photograph of the back and told us a little bit about where and how you acquired it.

    Jivvy the research is my favorite

    This is a frequent comment here and given the number of prints we see misidentified as paintings, I totally get the inclination.

    But it makes me crazy every time I see it. There are, and long have been, artists who do not want visible brush marks. In fact, the goal of no visible brush marks has a much (much) longer history in art than the freedom to show brush marks.

    Plus, phone cameras are brilliant at completely distorting textures. :p

    EDIT: artwork samples from Mr. Jivvy.

    On age, the back suggests "recent"... I suspect someone studying the Academic Method, making a "master copy."

    Or one of the many companies that makes copies of paintings... I think this is better than those usually are, but it's still a possibility.
