A lovely good-sized, (30 1/2" by 34 1/2", and 34 1/2" by 38" framed) impressionist painting of a Swiss garden in Rovio near Lugano in the southern part of Switzerland hard on the Italian border, between famous Lakes Como and Maggiore, titled on reverse "Garten in Rovio", and dated there 1928, by well-listed Spanish artist JOSE SANZ Y ARIZMENDI (1885-1929). This is an impressive work by a talented artist. His biography is elusive. He was from Spain but spent a lot of time in Switzerland. This work has an original period label from E. Schlaefli, a Bern, Switzerland art dealer and framer. The condition is excellent over all, but there are a few light abrasions and a small depression/dimple area from past pressure (in the leaves at upper left center). Frame has some wear consistent with its age. Overall this is simply quite a beautiful, classic work of impressionism. The artist died a year after this was completed. E
