Presented for sale is a delightful 19th century oil on canvas by Italian artist, A. Vescovi. The painting depicts a coastal scene with people on a beach picking up clams and crabs while fishing boats line the horizon in the background. These scenes were typical for this artist, who liked to present the simple and hardworking people who lived along Italy’s expansive coastal towns. The painting exhibits an almost dreamlike quality as the light plays in the pools of water collected on the darker sand against the seamless horizon meeting the water.
The painting is in excellent condition and housed in a highly carved fruit laden frame with seeded panels. It is signed in the lower right hand corner.
