This is a painting by African American artist Arthello Beck (Texas, 1941-2004).

This piece was painted in 2001 and would have a value of $4000.00 to $5,000 as an original painting.

If this is a lithographic print (most likely), it would have a value of $75.00 to $100 based on recent sales of his prints.

He painted in oil and oil paintings do not need to be matted or under glass, so I get the indication that what you have is a print.
