Oil on canvas painting of the famous Rialto Bridge in Venice, 24" by 12", signed at lower right and again on the reverse by fine gallery artist ANTONIO SANNINO (1956-). This is one of the most famous classic sights of one of the world's most famous cities. Sannino has painted it in a fine impressionist manner, catching the movement of the water and the bright sunshine of the region. Compare to the very expensive, highly sought-after paintings of Spanish-born artist Martin Rico y Ortega (1833-1908); Sannino must have been familiar with that artist's work when he painted this. Born in Naples in 1956, Sannino went to England in his early twenties to study art. Upon his return to Italy he became a talent recognized by a number of fine galleries in Europe and the United States. This work is in excellent, unusually fresh condition and needs only a frame.
