Large and striking vintage mid-century framed oil painting on canvas measuring 23" tall by 19" wide. Featuring a colorful, impressionist view of a French street scene with the Arc de Triomphe in the background, pedestrians are dressed in 1920s style clothing -- the woman in red wears a flapper style cocoon coat with cloche hat. Bearing the bold A. BRASSO signature, back is complete with the original artist's Registration tag, painted in Spain and dated 1941.
Research indicates Brasso painted a variety of French inspired street scenes -- this was one of his favorite images and he duplicated it a few times - I found a similar painting which sold at the Louis C. Morton Gallery recently for $185.00. Just a wonderful vintage oil painting - bold brush strokes and vibrant colors give the viewer a feeling of movement and energy. Think it would be a wonderful addition to any home, collection or display!
