1920s Painting on Canvas Board Portrait of African American Man with Beret in Folk Art Frame

The painting is on a canvas artist board and is unsigned. The board is old and by the look of the man's clothes he is circa 1920's. The white hat appears to be a large beret style hat and very similar the French hat, casquette. Both of these hat were very fashionable in the 1920's. The 20's had of course embraced the French Culture and their decadence but America had embraced the music of Jazz. Jazz men were at the height of fashion with many musicians going to France to perform, Ragtime was the go to music in France at that time. 

The portrait is of man who is proud and an entertainer. The flair for current fashion and the fashion of France is very evident. Th painting is unsigned and there is no attribution on the back. Framed in a antique folk art frame, the simple wide profile frame with sliver, most likely silver radiator paint corners, accent this great frame. 
The painting is on a canvas board and has been unaltered.
