1957 Nude Oil Painting

Here's a quirky and whimsical "nude" painting that is dated 1957 on the back. Unsigned, but attributed to H.L. Rittenhouse, this beauty is done in oil on mason board. Measurements are 16" x 10" . Rittenhouse was a Poughkeepsie artist who was known for his caricatures of the horses and their jockies at the Saratoga Race Track in Upstate New York. This is one of his earlier works and shows some wear, especially on the edges, but would look great framed.
