Condition/Notes : Good. Neapolitan School study of the Bay of Naples with Vesuvius in the background. The gouache on paper, pasted to board, is in very good condition with good colour and no marking or moisture. The painting depicts a coastal walkway with figures on the Bay of Naples with Mt. Vesuvius steaming in the background. A classic Neapolitan scene and a favourite subject for Maria Gianni - there are several very similar scenes by this artist in existence. The painting has the characteristic matt tone of gouache and a very Neapolitan feel to the overall work. The artist's signature - M. Gianni - is in the lower rh corner in the usual manner. The painting is currently unglazed and displayed without mount - typical of this period - within a decorative felt lined frame. The backing board is an acid board with brown paper pasted to the back and is currently loose fitted awaiting reglazing. As it is preferable to ship without glass, reglazing will be left to the future owner who may well wish to reframe the painting and include a conservation mount board to further protect the painting. A very pleasing painting and quite large compared to other similar works. Please view the images below :
