Circa 1890, a very poetic Italian watercolor of a fishermen's village by the Mediterranean sea, with charming characters and colors to die for!
This is the kind of paintings made for the visitors of the time, somewhat naive, but also totally genuine.
You will love the colors!
They have this powdery quality of Italian gouaches, where the sky is always an ideal teal and peach.
The piece shows an old thatched house on the right, with a hardworking woman standing on a wooden platform and getting water from a brook.
She wears a long Victorian cotton dress with an apron, above what looks like bloomers.
She seems to also wear a rustic cotton cap.
A fisherman behind the house is readying his fishing net, while a man is walking with a stick on the path towards the beach.
In the distance is a coastal village, and various ships out at sea, with traditional sails.
Volcanic mountains in the background, including what may be the Vesuvius on the horizon.
A super charming artwork, with a lot of details, that will bring a touch of antique poetry to any decor!
