Here is a nice Antique Watercolor (Aquarell) Painting by Vittorio Guaccimanni for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
Nice watercolor painting of Standing Monk Holding a Large Blue Cobalt Pitcher in one hand and cradling a wine jug wrapped in reeds in the other. Then check out the detailing of the stucco and brick structure in the background. The watercolor was done by Vittorio Guaccimanni. The artist was Italian and was with us from 1859 to 1938.
His works are very eye catching with the colors and details. He captured a lot of monks in his works and this one looks like he could come walking right out of the frame! There is a sticker on the back which says the piece was restored in 1975, but no mention as to the work that was performed. The watercolor has not been examined out of the frame.
The watercolor is framed and matted. The wood frame is gold and black colored with a raised plaster detail. The frame does show some plaster loss, most notably in the upper right hand corner.
The white matting looks good. The glass is intact over the watercolor. The brown paper backing is torn in places. The piece was restored and framed by Staton's Gallery of Philadelphia. See no repairs to the paper, so appears to have been a cleaning of the watercolor.
The framed watercolor is 40" tall, by 30" across, by 1-3/8" wide. The watercolor within the matting is 17" across, by 27.25" tall. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
