Description

Description: We offer an original unsigned gouache painting on paper that is 10" x 14" and inscribed Isola di Capri. This vivid guazzo of Capri was likely a souvenir for wealthy tourists on their Grand Tour of Italy. The anonymous artists of the Neapolitan School were more invested in the idea of a painting than the painting itself and we are left with an iconic visual language that appeals to our modern sensibilities. Item #FA00097.

Condition: There are scattered scratches on the surface, most noticeable at the bottom right corner of the image, a 3/4" repaired tear at the bottom painted margin well away from image and a faint crease at the top left corner, otherwise very good.
