Offered for your consideration is an original unframed mixed media painting on art board, measuring 20" by 30". The subject is a pensive, seated young boy with pencil in hand, the work signed at upper left center by the well-known Argentine artist Aldo Luongo (1940-). Luongo, of Italian parentage, is recognized internationally for his thoughtful contemporary figural paintings, many of which have been reproduced in widely dispersed signed, limited edition prints. The consummate gallery artist, Luongo's work , including thoughtful studies of individuals or, sometimes, romantic couples, is very popular, and works sell online and at live auctions. Landscape and still life works are also in the artist's oeuvre, but his figurals are his best known and most sought after subject matter I believe. This example likely dates to the 1970's or so. Condition is excellent with the exception of a scratch about 2" long at right center (see photo). Many images of the artist's work are visible with an online search. See a limited edition print by Luongo in my shop.
