Atmospheric skilled watercolor painting of Venice and the famous lagoon at dawn or sunset, signed at lower right by the artist, GUIDO AGOSTINI (1870-1898, different dates are shown in different reference sources). The painting, 11 3/4" by 15 3/4" inside the present mat, 18" by 22" in simple modern frame, shows the skill of its creator, with fine detail in the architecture, gondola, and figure, and the pink-orange light suffusing the scene. The artist worked evidently in oil and watercolor, his specialty landscapes of many parts of Italy. There seems to be little biographical information. The watercolor is in very good condition. The paper is laid down to a board (glued long ago) and presently this is loose in the frame so should be re-matted with acid free archival materials and so forth.
