Found painting of unknown origin

I found this painting which looks like it was once a portrait. It was discovered in an abandoned warehouse as we were clearing it out for demolition. It seems to be unfinished by the artist and heavily damaged by water. I think the water damage actually makes the image more interesting and adds to it as well. It almost looks like the negative from a roll of film in some parts and others look like the water has washed paint away. It is a very unique piece and I think it makes for an interesting piece of art. The painting was sent to a local museum to test for its date of origin and possible value, however, the museum sent it back with a letter warning us to not contact them again, saying something like they have seen this painting before and didn’t want anything to do with it.
