Oil on canvas painting of a young woman knitting on a grassy slope in a glade, 25" by 18", 32" by 25" framed, signed at lower right in red by a talented, though little-known, apparently Argentine painter who worked in the early years of the twentieth century, A. MORENO DE TORRES. This is a fine work by a very skilled hand. Were it by a better-known artist, the price would be multiples higher. I have searched extensively and can only find a brief early 20th century mention of the painter, in an article describing the "Segunda Esposicion de Bellas Artes Latino Americana en Paris" (see photos of that article I found online---mention of the artist is in Spanish, at top right of the article). The lady is lost in thought as she passes a peaceful hour in this sun-dappled idyllic spot. The frame is of much later date. Framing stickers show that it was previously in the Washington D.C. area, including Arlington, Virginia. Condition is excellent overall, with just a little stretcher bar show-through, a light rippling, and a few tiny paint losses.
