A small original oil painting of a Renaissance church scene signed by the artist (Bassan?). The small painting captures a lot of detail with an Impressionist approach to the scene, seamlessly blending the people outside a church and water's edge with simple details and in colors of muted browns and little pops of blue, white, and yellow. The painting is custom framed with a gilt and painted black wood frame and convex plexiglass. The back of the frame shows a peach satin dust cover and little metal hanger. The painting measures 6 7/8" across and 5" tall and with the frame the total dimensions are 9 3/8" wide and 7 1/2" tall. The overall condition is very good.
The paintings, watercolors, pictures and prints sold at Mateland's all have something in common--they are unique and/or original. We have a special affinity for self-taught artists and "Outsider Art" and see great potential in art that, with the simple changing of a frame, can be rejuvenated and incorporated into modern settings. If you'd like to have any additional photographs taken or even a video, we'd be happy to do that for you.
