A wonderful whimsical 1960s hand-painted screen or background depicting monkeys playing music. There are three panels. There is a collage aspect to it as the newspaper is actual and applied. It is signed on the lower right panel, what I read as Saul Garcia. The painting is nicely done. The hinges are double hinged and the screws are flat head. The paint is not finished which is why it may have been used as a backdrop for some kind of production.
