Condition/Notes : Good. The gouache on paper study of an Old Street in Naples, in traditional Neapolitan School style, signed by the renowned master Y. Gianni, is in very good condition with good strong colour and with no signs of damage or moisture. The composition depicts a typical Naples street scene with overlooking balconies and a side-stall, Gianni's favourite mother and child couple and street traffic passing an old archway into a distant vista. The sense of movement is achieved by the tight perspective accentuated by the tall buildings drawing the viewer into the scene. A classic Gianni technique which works very well is this large detailed work. The painting is signed by the artist in his usual manner in the lower lh corner. The painting is displayed in traditional period manner without a mount within a gilt decorated felt edged wooden frame which is in good condition with light wear and some fraying of the felt. The backing board is secured by pins and sealed with a sheet of brown backing paper. Hooks and wire attached. Overall, an excellent Neapolitan School work, in good condition and benefiting from the artist's signature. Please view the images below :
Note there are some reflections in glazing.
