Oil on canvas of a divan in an interior, unframed, 27 1/2" by 31 1/2", signed at lower right by listed Italian 20th century artist FRANCESCO (also known as Franco) PRAYER (1924-). The work is titled on the stretcher in Italian "Il divano a righi". Prayer's paintings are quite modernistic, with favorite subjects still life near open windows, interiors, or modernist landscape. They appear at auction in Italy. This painting is in good condition with exception of 1 1/4" horizontal cut in the canvas near the top, amateurishly taped on the reverse side. This could be easily patched. All in all a very fashionable work that will complement your modern home setting.
