Hello,This piece was created by the WT Burger Company. They employed foreign artists to create copies that were sold in department and furniture stores in the 1970's-80's. While it is an original painting, it is valued as a decoration and not as collectible art. The name Heinz is a pseudonym because they did not allow the artists to use their real names. There were several companies that did this during this time. These paintings have a general value of 20-30.00.
