    I bought these 2 paintings whose names I can't make out or find, along with 3 others by listed Cuban artist Pelly (Pedro Blanco Aroche) - for $75 each! (which I thought was a great deal?)
    The seller said they thought the 2 paintings here were by a Dominican artist?
    I can make out both last names - 1st is Martinez & 2nd is Senna - but I can't get the first names!
    Any help with the names or info on either artist would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Aniano, I think. Unless that's the name of the series, not the artist.

    There's an Aniano Martinez who died, age 80 in Miami, 2004.

    The second one is Luciano Senna, a quite well known Brazilian (I think...) artist

    I think the A. Martinéz painting is entitled 'Antillano' which translates to West Indian. Below it is "Series #" followed, of course, by the canvas size.

    The first could be signed T. Martinéz, because the t in Antillano comes down so far it makes the T. in T. Martinéz look like an A.
    I hope I explained that properly.:confused:

    Or maybe a F? Seller thought it was by a Dominican?
    PS - thank you all!

    It looks the same as the other t's, but you never know.
