The signature is clear in lower lh corner. The painting depicts a coastal scene, possibly in Capri, with figures dressed in Fusci's typical manner. The painting is displayed within a traditional early 20th C mount which is in quite good condition. The simple frame is sturdy with light scuffing to the edges. The back of the frame appears to be undisturbed, covered in brown sheet over a backing board held by old rusted headless pins. At the top is attached the framer's label which states "H.C. Pat & Co., Picture Framers, Moulders, Gilders, General Order Suppliers &c., &c., 2/3, Madge Lane, Calcutta. All sorts of painting, gilding done. No. 924 Date 22-1-29. See the photos below.
