Small gouache on paper painting of famous Mount Vesuvius volcano towering over Italy's Bay of Naples as it emits puffs of smoke, 6" by 8 3/8" inside the mat, 11 1/4" by 13 1/4" in inexpensive modern framing, unsigned. This is quite possibly or even likely a work of the artist Giuseppe Corelli (1858-1925); compare to another, signed work by that name in my shop. The stillness of the scene, and the handling of the haze and reflection, especially the vertical, long reflection of the boat, is certainly reminiscent of Corelli. This is a classic work from the school of painters that specialized in views of Capri, Naples, and the Amalfi Coast. The work is in fair condition; it has evidently been placed in the sun at some point, and condensation gathering on the glass dripped onto the paper in some places, creating the one inch roughly circular stained area at lower left, and there is a small similar stain at the very lower right edge, at the mat line. Also though less obvious there is mottled water drop residue in the sky at top right. Despite the flaws the drawing is displayable. These works are popular with decorators seeking a timeless and traditional look for an interior.
