Oil on canvas of two horses eating cut greens with chickens pecking the earth nearby in a clean but slightly rundown curral (farmyard) under bright sunlight and with bright red blossoming tree behind the horses losing some blossoms. Giovanni Oppido (1907-1988) is a well documented Brazilian artist. The painting is 23 x 46 ¼ inches (58.4 x 117.5 cm) with frame 27 ½ x 50 inches (69.8 x 127 cm). Signed lower left.
Condition: good, maybe a little surface dirt and the frame, molded softwood with a thin gilt edge next to the painting, is somewhat worn.
Simple composition well painted with good perspective and a quiet warm sense.
