The Anonymous Portrait Gallery - 3

The pictures are dated 1956 and '58. The signature (Andjelkovich) implies a Balkan origin for the artist. The swaths of flat color and the eyes make them seem classically folky. Years after I acquired these, someone saw them in my house and said his friend also owned some portraits by the same hand, which represented a rare moment of recognition for this type of art.
