Large oil on canvas painting of traditional sailing craft on the ocean, 24 1/2" by 34", 26 3/4" by 34 1/4" as framed), painted in an impressionist manner with palette knife, signed at lower right with the familiar "C Buenaventura" signature and "Manila 1964". The artist is CESAR BUENAVENTURA (1922-1983). Cesar was a son of well listed artist Teodoro Buenaventura Fernando Amorsolo the great Filipino artist was Cesar's godfather. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. In recent years paintings by Buenaventura have been bringing ever higher sums at auctions, (some achieving $5,000 level at Sotheby's/Christie's auctions in Hong Kong). This is a particularly early example.
