This piece is a lithographic print (reproduction on paper) of a famous painting by El Greco (1541-1614) an artist of the Spanish Renaissance

named Domenikos Theotokopoulos. This portrait is called Portrait of an Old Man and is presumed to be a self-portrait.

Prints of this painting were popular in the 1960's-mid 70's, so that is likely when your piece was published.

This piece has a value of $35.00 retail.
