Oil on canvas impressionist painting of small colorful boats off the Italian coast, 14" by 18" (22 1/2" by 26 1/4" as framed), signed at lower right in red "FRANCO RUOCCO". Just above that is inscribed in English faintly "In appreciation of our friendship" (I believe that is what it says.....it's faint). The work is very attractive and the impressionist brushwork is very pleasing. The painting likely dates to the 1960's, I would guess. It is old enough so that it would greatly benefit from a cleaning and varnish, as there is no varnish currently. There is a little missing paint in "Ruocco" when viewed up close.
