Umberto Gianni Miniature Bay of Naples Gouache 19th C
MEASURES about 3-1/2" x 8-1/4" sight, matted and framed to 11-1/2" x 16" x 1".

CONDITION is excellent, both frame and painting, although we have not examined it outside of the frame.

Charming miniature seascape by "U. Gianni," and so-signed lower right, likely an area along the Bay of Naples, as this was the site of other of the artist's paintings. Little is known about Gianni, although some of his works survive, in watercolor, gouache, oil and pastels according to auction records.

As far as we can tell, without removing the painting from the frame, appears to be on paper, matted in metallic gold card, and backed by wood. The frame is wood, with an ornate relief pattern of beading and acanthus leaves.

The artist's home was Italy,
19th to early 20th Century.
$30 US Shipping.
