Beautiful, large format original watercolor genre portrait of a young Venetian woman signed on the lower left G. Vizzoto Alberti, Venezia. Giuseppe Vizzotto Alberti (Italian, born Oderzo (Treviso) 1862 - died Venice 1931) studied at the Academy of Venice from 1880 to 1886. In1897, along with V. De Stefani, he painted the ceiling frescoes of the hall of the Palace of the Prefecture in Venice (Palazzo Corner della Ca 'Grande) with the Triumph of Venice and the Procession of the Doge. He was known for his landscape paintings (Fishermen in the lagoon, 1892) and genre scenes in costume. The beauty of this young woman must have captivated him to warrant a non-comissioned portrait. She also appears, in the same dress, in at least one other Vizzotto Alberti painting. He exhibited at the Venice Biennale (1895, In the rain; 1907 Small pianist) and at shows in Udine (1903, Low Tide), Turin (1898, Waters death; 1902 Autumnalia), Milan (1894, Vesper) and Rome (1895, Clouds Cannons). His works have been sold in major international auction houses such as Christie's and Bonhams among others. In very good used condition with toning and minor imperfections as shown.
